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.

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.
