    Where did the chicks come from? hatchery or breeder?

    I agree the little red and black bird is a rooster. He looks so tiny I'm thinking some type of bantam. No one else is screaming cockerel at this point.

    With the feathered feet I'd say some kind of cochin(it certainly will shorten the list of possible breeds). Four weeks maybe be a little early to sex, I've got some 6 week old bantam cochins that are starting to get more pronounced reddish crests which will most likely be males.
