    I'm thinking this is a little boy but I am not entirely sure. It's 6 weeks old give or take. Thank you!

    The large comb make me think cockerel. The coloring reminds me of a BSL pullet but I doubt it since the comb is so large. Yes, please show the other chick. Where did you get them?

    All came from Tractor Supply. It was supposed to be 2X Cornish Cross 2X BSL and 2X Asian but I'm thinking now the only thing that was right was the Cornish Cross. Pics incoming!

    I agree it is a mixed breed cockerel.
    The BSL should be immediately identifiable as males or females if they are the correct hybrid.

    Thank you. I dont think any of the dark colored birds I chose are correct. Total learning experience. I'll take pics and maybe you guys can help me identify? Im not raising for meat, I was wanting egg layers.
