5 weeks old, with a comb that big...I'm thinking that's a roo, what about you?
Wow, yeah, that is an impressive comb for one so little. What breed is (s)he? Very cute!
Dad's an amberlink, not sure about mom, I'm thinking amberlink due to color. Other options are black Australorp,barred rock,or Rhode island red but the plain feathering makes me doubt those 3.
That's from my first hatch 2 made it and they both look like roo's but hatch #2 looks to have quite a few pullets
Sorry, I am not familiar with those breeds and whether they are large combed or not.
I am definitely not an expert when it comes to chicken gender but if (s)he was one of my chicks, at that age, with that comb, I would say rooster.
Can we get a pic in natural light?
My phone doesn't take the greatest pictures, I prefer my DSLR but that's a bit more of a process to upload them
cockerel - very difficult to see with red light BUT the comb stands out anyway
If Dad's an Amberlink, and mom isn't, then the chicks is a mixed breed.
Do I see faint barring? It's hard to tell in the pic, but it seem like I do. If so, the momma is the barred Rock. If not, I'm thinking the Aussie. The dominant White in the Amberlink would turn the black into white. The Red wouldn't be the momma, or the chick would have a mix of red and white.
