    I posted a couple pics of this chick about a week ago and unanimous reply was Partridge Rock and possibly a cockerel. I have updated pics as of today. Chick will be 5 weeks old on Friday. Pullet, cockerel or too early to venture a guess? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    It's still a bit too early to be sure, but looks like a pullet for now. Males usually feather in solid black on their chests.

    I know it's not very pink yet but that comb is rather large and fleshy for 5 weeks old. I'm going with cockerel.

    I agree; I'm leaning toward pullet on this one.

    It is not extremely definitive, but I am guessing cockerel.

    I'm thinking pullet just because the comb doesn't scream cockerel at the moment
