    Also, just by looking, what gender do you suspect it is?

    I've been using Mozilla and it's been fine. You're probably using a different web browser like Internet Explorer or Safari.
    Sorry! Didn't think to cross check!

    It's too young to tell right now. Wait about a month and if the comb starts combing out and widening, then it'll more than likely be a roo. But I'll throw a guess out there and say it's a boy! Good luck!

    I was thinking something like that too.

    And, the person at the feed store inspected its vent and said it's probably a girl.
    How often is vent checking inaccurate?

    Hard to tell this young, but because they have large single combs watch for pink color on that comb...the pullet's should stay yellowish for a long time, whereas the male's will get color much earlier.
