    IMG_3756.JPG IMG_3766.JPG IMG_3774.JPG IMG_3625.JPG IMG_3773.JPG I'm scared. Scared that I may have a little boy I will be forced to re-home... I love this little munchkin. She/he is about 6 weeks old. Please, give me your expertise. I've searched all through the googles and the backyardchickens... Is my little Lavender a Lavendhim?

    Too young to say for certain, but so far she looks like a pullet.

    Please post pics in a few more weeks...right now I'm leaning towards cockerel because of the leakage on his wings.

    That's what I was afraid of :( Those red feathers scare me.

    Looks like a pullet to me. The full tail and pale comb makes me think pullet. Another sexing tip I've heard of with pea comb chickens is if the comb has 3 distinct rows of peas it's a cockerel. Hope this helps!

    Since it has reddish feathers throughout it's body, I think the "red over wings," doesn't apply.

    Even in breeds like Rhode Island Reds you see the darker red on males, but in this chick it might or might not mean male. It's a little young to say for sure.
