    Can anyone help me identify the gender and/or breed of my chick? It is almost 3 weeks old.

    Hard to tell at this time since it looks like it’s over a week old, normally within 24 hours you can vent sex id or wing check them but @thus point you’ll probably have to wait till it’s 6-8 wks old unless someone know the breed and can color sex identify them.

    Please wait until six weeks, then post pics of the comb. It kind of looks like a sex link chicken. And in that case, probably a cockerel.

    You'll have to wait until at least 6-8 weeks for an accurate guess. 3 weeks is still much to young.
