    Tail at 6 weeks is an indication of nothing. Color suggests girl but pretty young yet [​IMG]

    I thought you can start seeing that difference in tail i.e. Pointed versus squareish. I hope girl I have like 20 roosters..over 200 chickens now [​IMG]

    Male feathering usually doesn't begin to develop until about 10 weeks old, and it can take several more weeks for the male feathering to be clearly visible.
