    I wasn’t sure how to post a comment with the picture. This is a 3 week old Asian that I got fromTSC. It was in with the pullets and my husband checked the wings and said he thinks it’s a pullet but I have never seen such a pronounced comb on such a young chick that was a pullet. The others we bought along with it aren’t nearly as developed. Any thoughts?

    Looks like a roo by the size of the comb and the upright posture!

    While not the best pic for sexing(turn off the heat lamp, red light distorts what we need to see), that sure looks like a cocketel ftom what can be seen.
    Also, wing sexing is not applicable for these birds.....it must be selectively bred for as a sex linked trait and the "reading" must be within three days of hatch
