    So my blue andalusian has a really big dark red comb and waddles. None of our other chickens have a comb like this, but we have 11 different breeds, so we have nothing to really compare her(him?) to. What do you guys think? All our chickens are between 26 and 30 weeks, so I would think if she was a rooster, she'd have crowed by now, right? But I do leave around when the sun comes up so maybe I just havn't heard it? None of our chickens have laid any eggs yet, and we're a bit concerned about that, but that is another post in a different section. Haha!

    That's a female. Andalusians are a similar breed to Leghorns and get those huge ol combs. But your girl has no rooster feathering, and the comb would be larger if she were male. You should be getting white eggs any day now.

    Def a Andalusian hen. You can tell because 1) that breed has rather large comb and wattles and I would be expecting that on a hen of this breed 2) she doesn't have any hackles which are extremely noticeable shiny neck feathers of a roo.
