    This is a chick I hatched from breeding my Birchen too to my black hen. It was my first chick from the pair, and I have a dozen eggs in the bator from the pair that I keep adding to. Since I got the roo grown, I can't compare the coloring to the chick, and was hoping someone on here might be able to help.
    I am leaning towards rooster, but don't know if the white would be more pronounced if he was actually a he.

    I can get more pictures if needed, but the chick was cooperating with me
