    Do I know my anatomy or what???!!

    Two of our 5 week chicks are getting little red bits by the sides of their beaks. We are hoping this doesn't indicate roo.
    Is there a chicken anatomy poster on this board?

    Wattles, I think that's what you mean [​IMG] And yes... there IS a page...brb

    Some breeds have smaller wattles than others, and typically a roo has larger , redder wattles than a hen [​IMG] Hope that helps [​IMG]
