    This is an gray bantam Easter egger crossed with either black silkie rooster or black frizzle cochin bantam rooster.
    Light skin...dark feet and 4 toes. Guesses on gender and also likely father?

    Looks like a pullet...

    Edit...cochin father most likely due to leg feathering

    Agreed, Cochin is more likely the father. And if its 7 weeks its likely a pullet.

    Hi!

    It looks like a pullet to me! I don’t see signs of roosters saddle feathers or waddles. Hope you find out all her breed information. She is very pretty!

    Hope this helps!

    This chick is only 7 weeks old. Male specific saddle feathers won't come in for nearly another 8-10 weeks.
