    So this is my Red Sex Link X Buff Orpington, now called Diego as I believe he's a he! He's only 2 weeks old!!! I feather sexed him as female, but we all know that's only about 50% correct [​IMG]

    Anywho, I thought it was odd that I was seeing such a large pink comb and little pink waddles on a 2 week old. He's also very flighty and pecky.

    Generally I won't say anything definitive about a bird this young... but he has got some serious wattles there. I'd bet good money he's a cockerel.
