    This white chick is a 5 week old mix. Do you think it's a male or female?

    The coloration is typical of a red sexlink male. A cockerel.

    But... if it is a cockerel, you'll see major comb and wattle development in the next two weeks.

    Aw man! What do you think about the red and black chick in the first photo with the comb? Definitely rooster?
