    This is one of the 3 chicks we got they are now 10 weeks old. Does anyone know if this one is a Rooster or hen ??? The amazing thing this one is the sweetest one; loves to be Petted and held and I'm the one that picked this one out. This is going to make it really hard to give this one away if it is a rooster, not sure I will be able to; Since we want all Hens. The one in the front.[​IMG]

    I think you should post this in what breed/gender forum and if you can get a clearer photo that would help.

    I'm not sure without others of same breed age to compare, but looks like a lot of comb already.

    Hard to say. But I'm also leaning toward a rooster.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. We really need a better profile shot showing the head and tail to determine your bird's gender for certain. Definitely post on our What Breed or Gender is This? link that TwoCrows provided you with and let our experts there take a look at it. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Your bird is looking like a cockerel to me, based on the thick legs and developing comb. However, I could be wrong.

    For more answers, I would make a post in the What Breed or Gender is This? section of the forums.

    Good luck!
