    Supposed to be a austarlorp but feed store has already been wrong on two other chicks! Also while you are here can you guess at a gender. Supposed to be a pullet but look at the comb and wattles. This chick is 4 weeks old.

    Well I can tell you that it does look like a roo. I also got a sexed pullet at the feed store, which turned out to be a roo. He's a beautiful RIR, and we love him now...so all is good that ends well. I can't tell the breed though, although my black sex link pullets had the orange on the chest like that.

    It looks like a black sex link, and if it is, it's definatley a girl. I know it sounds funny but I had a BSL that I knew was a girl, but I was still paranoid because it was developing early.

    Quote:If it was a black sex link male it would be barred. The females are black with some red, mostly on the chest area.

    This bird is the biggest of all the chicks and 3rd when you compare feathering. Also hasthe biggest comb andwattles. Hmm IDK it feathered quickly and developed wattles and a cmb quickly as well. How well did your blacksex link grow?
