    I have a chicken which I hatched late December. It is silkie X Black Australorp. Can anyone help me with sexing please? I believe it is a cockeral. Sorry about quality.

    Africa - near the equator
    Lotta wattle going on for a bird of that age - leads me to think cockerel also.

    cockerel - certainly shows the silkie dominance with toes, comb etc. Wonder what the others from the hatch looked like

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    That is definitely a cockerel. He's kind of handsome. I enjoy unique birds. [​IMG]
