    Where did you get the chick? This might help narrow down the breeds.

    It could be a Black Australorp chick, or possibly a female Black Sex Link chick. There are several breeds that have similar looking black chicks when they first hatch. I would post it's pic again in about 4-5 weeks. By then we should be able to tell you for sure.

    Aww so cute i think the chick is a black sex link and to find out if it is a roo or a pullet if you have some scales to weight the chick put the chick on the scales and read what it says and it seems like a big number for a little chick then you have a roo but if it seems like a good weight number for the chick then you have a pullet
    good luck[​IMG]
