What gender is this little chick
Much too early to tell. Is it a white Sussex?
yes, white with black neck
Yes, i agree with JedJackson. I raise Silver Sussex and from my experience, you can really only tell at about three weeks of age.
Oh.. how can you tell? what features of the chick?
Wait until around six weeks.
Well one way I tell is the colour or size of the chicks wattles and comb. It doesn't work for every breed but for the more common ones it usually does.
Also another way to tell is the overall size of the chick and sometimes the chicks feet size too. Sometimes the personality can tell but there are hens who act just like roosters.
Mostly you need to wait till they are old enough to show some gender features, 8 weeks or so for comb development. 3 mos.+ to see gender feathering differences like hackle & saddle featherin
