    I have a 1.5 month old chick and I can't tell if this one is a boy or a girl. I can clearly tell with the other two chicks - all three are mixed breeds. This particular chick is half Australorp. I'm leaning toward it being a girl. Despite the larger comb and wattles, this chick has rounder features and doesn't seem to carry itself upright like a roo (although this could be wishful thinking on my part.) This chick also has a half sibling that looks similar and it turned out to be a girl. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :)

    Im no expert, but for 6 weeks it looks like a cockerel to me. Big red comb.

    That's a cockerel.

    It's young yet, so it still has baby features, not necessarily male features. but that comb tells the tale, sorry.

    Looks cocky to me. The comb and wattles aside those tail feathers look very rooster like.
