I posted this in a previous thread but it's getting lost in the rubble, so hopefully this post will get some answers... This was supposed to be a BLRW chick. It apparently has proper lineage (nicely laced parents) but IMO something went wrong, it looks like a mutt to me. Anyways. Thought it was a pullet a month ago but now my hopes are sinking. He/she is now 10 weeks old and although there is no comb and the wattles are barely there, I see saddle feathers growing in. Face is getting red, hackle feathers look pointy, wing feathers are shiny/irridescent and those legs ain't small. I'm so discouraged - we're over-run by boys and I can only keep a handful, the rest will have to be re-homed after all this hard work and investment - and who the heck wants a mutt rooster anyways?. I took some pics today and would love confirmation that Scarlet is, indeed, a boy THANK YOU!!
