I know that in most cases, 4 1/2 weeks of age is too young to tell if a chick will be a boy or girl. But I’m standing firm in my belief that Pip is going to be a Roo.
Pip as a very pronounced comb for a small chick, and has had one since his 2-week mark.
Also, his wee little baby wattles have taken on a jowly look. The last chick I had to look like that was definitely a rooster.
I hope he turns out to be mild mannered, like his papa. We’ll be keeping him through the winter, so he’ll have plenty of time to interact with Double Dots and the hens.
