    Kinda looks like a male but not for sure.. I have Male Brown Chinas that are 5 months old with the same size knob. But mine are show quality birds.. So I think it is different..

    I'd say male. I have a female around 6 months old and her knob isn't as 'wide' if that makes sense.
    Here she is about a month ago (5 months/20 weeks old).

    Mine all have knobs the same width but not the same heighth.. I can tell sexes from size and voice easiest..

    How do you tell by the voice? I wondered if the males sound different.

    Ganders' calls tend to sound louder and more "musical". While hens' calls are shorter and tend to sound like "goink".
