    This little guy ? is 2-3 weeks old. I'm very new to chickens, but I *think* that this is a rooster. Am I right?

    My 4 week old BR's comb is smaller and yellow in comparison, and doesn't have wattles starting. I'd say you have a cute little roo on your hands.

    Thanks everyone. I also have another BR who is the same age. That one looks like a hen to me (a smaller, yellowish comb).
