    I don't know about breed. His posture and long legs seem game bird-ish. It's a bit too early to note gender, but that's quite an upright posture which can indicate rooster, but he's got skinny legs which can indicate hen. I know he's super cute and already has an impressive stink eye.[​IMG]

    Yup. Post us another pic at about 8 weeks and we'll try again. Like I said, it's much too early to guess gender just yet. That baby's gonna change a lot in the next few weeks.

    You really should have other chicks with it - apparently it is very difficult to integrate a single chick that has never been around other chickens before. Most of the time the minimum people will keep is 3, in case something happens to one.
