    At 31 days old, here is my little Serama chick that I'm hoping is a hen. What do you think? too young to tell yet ?

    Here's another pic, with the EE/Maran cross chick that hatched the same day she did.

    I know by about 6 weeks if mine are cockerels or pullets. You should definitely be able to tell in a few more weeks.

    Do you have other chicks to compare it to? Its pretty easy when you have other chicks. Pretty much NO comb, pullet.....some comb, cockerel...at that age.
    Im thinking pullet too, but its hard to see in the pics....looks like there is no comb on that one. [​IMG]

    Too young, BUT a serama breeder nearby has a hen that looks almost IDENTICAL to yours at 1 month old.

    Too young at the picture isn't close enough but I'll guess, cockrel .

    Cockerel. I see pink in the comb. A pullet that age should have a pale yellow comb. Also the comb is too big for a 31 day old pullet.
