    Hi! I need some input on the gender of my chick. We're not sure if he/she is a roo or hen. We hatched him/her ourselves and we think he/she is an Americauna Copper Maran mix. The chick is ten weeks old. Here are some pics. By the way he is the pure brown chick.:)

    A clearer pic - side view of the tail would be helpful. Hard to tell for sure, but I THINK I'm seeing dark, drooping feathers growing out in the tail - which would indicate male. But it may just be the blurred pics that make it look that way...

    With a comb that red, I'm guessing it's a cockerel. 10 weeks is still a bit young for male specific feathering.

    I'm also thinking cockerel. A closer pic would confirm.
