    So my friendliest, favorite chick made an actual chicken noise this morning. It wasnt a full out crowing noise, so im still undecided (or maybe in denial) that it is a rooster. It is 9 weeks old now, so give me your best guess. I've been thinking roo all along but hoping i was wrong. Thanks for the help!

    Too young to tell for certain, but keep listening to it. If that is a crow, it will get worse before it gets better--think of boys going through puberty whose voices break--kinda like that.

    It does appear to have a largish comb.

    Am I seeing things, or does anyone else see a blue patch where his ear is?

    Nope. You are not seeing things. They have turquoise earlobes. I'm thinking cockerel. In the 1 picture it looks like it's got a little tiny bit of a red wattle.
     
  9. X2, and the crest feathers sweeping back look quite shiney...
     

  10. Sweet looking boy!
