    I'm not 100% because I've never really had experience with oriental breeds before but I'd put my money on hen.

    Thank you :), it's about 4 and a half weeks and idk yet. Sometimes it looks like a hen and other times it looks like a male. Do you know any methods how to sex them at 4 weeks?

    Usually male Malays heads are bigger then the hens so compare his or her head with the other chicks
