    Hi everyone! Im new to raising chicks and I'm having a blast except I'm stressing out about whether or not one of my chicks is a pullet or cockerel! I don't know which breed she is cause I didn't get her from a feed store, she/he hatched in my animal systems class. Could be cross between Ameraucana and maybe buff Orpington, I was told. She/he is 4 weeks old now.

    Black one is looking like a cockerel at this point in time. When they are 6-8 weeks, you could post photos of all (my suggestion) at "what breed or gender is this?"
