This one is about 4-6 weeks old.
Sebrights are SO hard to tell, because the males are "hen-feathered" - so the comb is about the only way to tell the difference and it can take several weeks to begin to grow out into the male comb.
I couldn't tell at this stage. Wait for the comb to develop a spike pointing back along the top of its head. Then you know you have a cockerel.
Thanks for reading/commenting. I think I have three sebrights and one of them is making a errrr---eeeee noise. I can't tell which is making the noise but this one is the largest of the three and chest-bumps others often.
He probably is the cockerel then, are you planning to keep them as a trio?
i think roo he's looks a lot like mine did at that age mine is 10 weeks old now
I'm not able to keep roos here. We live in an area zoned agricultural but we have one acre lots. I will probably give him away.
Sorry, that looks to be a boy. Sebright hens have VERY small, almost nonexistent, combs. The comb development on yours is a dead giveaway that it is a boy.
I agree that it is a boy. My 10 week old silver sebright pullet has a comb that is so small that the only way you know it's there is by feel. Sorry.
