    I was pretty sure it was a she...but now that I am looking at "her", it looks like it could be a "he."
    She's only around 2 weeks old. Has a tiny comb. Anyone have opinions?

    Unless you have a degree in blowing up little chicky bottoms your gonna have to wait till they are closer to 8 weeks old. Then its all up to rather you have dark bars or light bars. I have a flock of barred rocks and some of my roosters are dark barred and look very different from my dark barred pullets and then some of my rooster are light barred but I have no light barred hens to compare them with. The only thing that gives them away is the bigger combs and waddles.
