    Back in March, we got four two-week-old pullets, two Buff Orpingtons, one Amerucauna (so they say) and one golden sex-link. This would put them at about 5 & 1/2 months old. My dad, being the impatient person that he can be, has been joking that he thinks we actually got four roosters instead of hens. Haha. Right? Well, in the last two or three weeks, one of my Buffs has quickly developed a bright red comb & waddle and the other has not. So, I have my suspicions, but I thought I would see what others had to say about my mystery bird.

    I know these are not the best in the world, but I can take some better quality photos if no one can help me.

    Oh no!! Our farm manager swears up and down she, or, uh, he is not a rooster because he has not started crowing... What now? We just have one coop and were definitely not planning on the possibility of little fluffy chicks...
