The chicks are 2 weeks and 3 days old and now that we are home I have noticed that the speckled Sussex has a larger or more pronounced comb than the other two, more of a tail and is a little bit bigger than the other two. The other two are a Cochin and a buff Orpington. I am so disappointed that this SS could be a roo. Are these things I mentioned indicators or should I not be comparing since they are different breeds?
The thought of raising this chick only to have to get rid if it makes me want to just get rid if it now and spare my 5-year-old the heartache. Thank you for any input.
