    So out of my whole batch of chicks, this is the one that has continued to throw me for a loop! I almost threw in the towel thinking it was a cockerel, but lately I am not so sure! He/she hatched around July 13 (little over 2 months old). I believe her/him to be a Wyandotte/Australorp cross. Let me know your thoughts!![​IMG]

    I do see your dilemma, if it's truly only around two months than more than likely will end up a rooster. I think.

    I'm going to say pullet, but I'm not positive.

    You've got to come back in a month or so and update us! This one's going to be interesting.

    I would like to say pullet too but, that is a lot of comb. Thankfully it is NOT red. I think the next month or so will flush out what gender. As long as the comb does redden, it looks good for being a pullet.
