    I hatched this chick from an egg from a mixed flock. It is 6 weeks old. It has no comb and not even the hint of anything yellow or red where the comb should be. In the sunlight the back feathers have an irradecent green color to them. Does anyone one have any idea what breed this is or if it is a roo or hen. It looks like a hen to me but the green feathers make me think it is going to be a roo.

    you think this could be a roo without a comb at 6 weeks?

    That looks just like my black Australorp. They are black with black legs and they have a greenish tint to their feathers when the sun hits them. Not sure if it is a roo or a hen though.
    To me it looks like a hen. Mine is close to the same age and SHE does not have a noticeable comb either. Hope this helps.
