Hi, I would appreciate some input on the gender of this Ancona chick which was purchased as sexed. Approximately 4-6 weeks old. Got a mixed bag of chicks (1 ancona, 1 (?milli) belgian ducle, 1 lavender pekin, 1 gold laced wyandotte so not really another to compare it to. The wyandotte is also stirring me up because of slow feather growth - but will post photos of this under a new thread. Thank you for any input.

Welcome to the forum!

As Sue said, you've got a male, and he has some very cute colouring if I do say so. :clnava

Hi, Thank you both for your response. He was an early bloomer after this photo and began to crow a while ago at just 9 weeks old. Here is a follow up photo of the handsome boy
