    Trying to figure out if TSC lied to me about this one being a Hen.

    That is a lot of red for such a young age.

    Did you get more then one of that breed? Hard to compare with just one. Looks boyish though.
    Are you SURE it is only 5 weeks old?

    Them are some thick legs too.

    I got 3 other of them from the same hatch, they all have a lot of brown on them and not a lot of comb or waddle growth.

    My pullet is a golden brown in color. That one looks light to me. ISA brown are sex links they may have given you something different. Were they sold straight run? Also has a lot of comb for that age to be pullet.

    Here it is standing next to one of the other ones, they were sold as sexed pallets, but with such a difference it makes me wonder 20170515_214818.jpg 20170515_214829.jpg 20170515_214811.jpg 20170515_214825.jpg

    Looking at them together screams boy.

    Man what a downer. I am sorry you drew the short straw. (Unless you want a boy)

    The same thing happened to me. The cute fluffy yellow chicks are boys. That is definitely a roo.
