    This little guy is the oddball of my hatch out of 6 there all white except for him. Leghorn/golden comet cross. White male leghorn father.
    Any ideas on his sex or is it to early yet he is about 3 weeks old.

    To early to tell...

    I hope you get a bunch of girls! A Leghorn/Golden Comet cross should make some AWESOME layers! [​IMG]

    The brown egg gene is dominant, BTW. [​IMG]

    I'm not even close to an expert on this, but I'm guessing cockerel. The comb seems to be pretty noticeable in a 2-3 week old chick. Very cute!

    My guess is a roo. That first pic he looks to be already puffing out his chest.

    Quote:It's still to early to tell. You might still have some pullets there.

    I know im just losing faith in getting any this year its my last hatch for the year even this one was a little late was just a last ditch attempt to get a few for this year. Up here in canada normally wouldnt hatch anything after august due to how cold it gets soon after.

    If that baby has leghorn in it, could be a girl, they have large combs to start with. Just have to wait another week, bet you will be able to tell better by the wattles. Sure is a pretty baby. It has a spot on the top of it's head like a barred rock. Interesting color pattern going on. You will have to post more pictures in the future. Will be fun to see how this one turns out.
