Hi ! I am newbie chicken mom. I have noticed one of my chicken has bigger comb and wattle than the others. Is he a boy? I am hoping not... I put my 2 leghorn pictures as comparison. They are both 16 weeks old. Thank you!

Pictures of the tail will be helpful and please take into consideration that I am not wonderful at this. My reply is merely a guess based on my minimal experience. I would expect a deeper red comb and wattles for a cockerel, plus a much larger comb. Each bird varies though. There are some folks here that are absolutely amazing at sexing a bird and I'm sure they'll be along soon with an accurate reply.
