    My chick is now 5 weeks old and am still wondering the breed and gender. If anyone could help that would be awesome!

    x2, Buff Orpington most likely. And very likely a cockerel.

    I think the other members are correct, Buff Orpington cockerel. Although I think he looks rather big for an Orpington at this age. It may just be the angle of the picture.

    He looks similar to my BO boys. Here they are 4-5 weeks. Don't mind Popeye. He's been slow to feather.
