    Can anyone help with determining sex of this chick?
    We were told that it is a wyandotte rhode island mix. It has some iridescent feathers (blue and red sheen)
    Thanks!

    Too young to tell. Check back with updated photos when it is 10-12 weeks of age.

    It is a little young to sex right now. A closer picture could help possibly determine the sex of the chick.

    It's not screaming cockerel at this point. How old is it? Can you get a better comb picture?

    How old? Looks like a pea comb? You sure on the mix, what other kinds of chickens were around? Can we get a closer pic of the comb/wattle, neck & back tail area....From what I see from that pics, looking pullet.

    Cockerel. The white wing bars give him away. Inherited it from the Wyandotte side "must have been a silver laced".
