Here are some pics of our almost 8 week old chicken. What do you think - pullet or roo?
My first thought was Pullet but when I saw the 5th pics, got my doubts & say possible Cockerel. Waiting to see what others think... Pretty bird.
I'm with chicknanny13. I think you may need to wait a few weeks to see some other signs. My gut feeling is pullet, but...
Those muffs are adorable!
I think cockerel. That's just too much red in the comb at this age.
That is a lot of red pretty sure it's a cockerel
Ok if donrae & divastick diva say cockerel it proabaly is, Kim Z noticed all that red ....4x Cockerel, sorry if that's what you weren't hoping for
I've been on the fence...and it seems like some of you are as well! There are some signs that make me think rooster (really pink comb), but then there's other things that make me think pullet (no sign of wattles). I was hoping by 8 weeks that there would be more definitive signs, but we may have to just keep waiting! Thanks for all of your thoughts.
With that rose or mixed comb, you're not going to get a lot of wattles, especially at a young age. Straight combed birds get huge wattles, other styles, not so much. Google pics of Wyandottes, Buckeyes, Brahmas, Dominiques, etc and check out how small the wattles are on even the mature roosters.
