    I am thinking splash or grey, but I am not sure, and I have no idea as to the gender. It is 8 weeks old. Any guesses?

    Quote:A rooster? Well, that definitely means it won't ever be going broody(as I had hoped), but I never mind having more roosters. Thanks for your opinion!

    Blue or splash; too young to tell gender; I've had PQ tiny crested girls look like that as chicks (as well as boys); comb looks on hte largish side, though. Streamers are more off the neck than the top of the head.
