Lots of comb there for six weeks old. I'm betting you suspect Kiwi is a little boy. I think you're right.

Welcome to the forum! How did you get Kiwi and what breed do you think he or she is?
My SIL got her/him from a friends farm(we live in Australia) after the mother abandoned her babies, kiwi was the only survivor. The owner of the mum thinks it may have aracauna in it but I honestly have no clue unfortunately.

I'd guess rooster too, but still too young to be positive. I've just started using a new rooster with the hens. For a serama, his comb is way oversized and his offspring also have oversized combs. The pullets have combs like a cockerel. The cockerel's combs are even larger. So, without knowing your chick's background... It's much easier to sex young birds when there's siblings to compare with.

I had one Silkie girl keep me guessing until she was 8 months old. Of course that's a Silkie but I could normally tell who was what way before that.
