    It's hard to tell at a young age. But I'm guessing a hen x

    What breed is this? The only thing I can really go by at this point is the comb. At 7 weeks I feel like a cockerel would have a larger and brighter comb. I'm going with pullet!

    I really dont know what breed this chick is some kind of mixed breed i guess ...... and yes regarding the comb being larger and brighter for cockerels i have read that in some breeds pure or mixed does not develop combs in young ages and that made me suspecious

    Well since it's a mix it makes it even harder to tell since it won't follow any similar growth rates or characteristics of other breeds. I still am going with pullet but I guess you won't know until later on!
