I'm a newbie and wondering when you can tell if the chick is a rooster. She is a little larger than the other chicks (Speckled Sussex, Buttercup and Buckeye) her age. I'm hoping she's just a big girl. Any thoughts?
I also have 3 buff Brahmas and I'm trying to figure out if they are roo's or pullets. Is it normal for a pullet to start growing the iridescent tail feathers? or is that just a roo characteristic?
I'll try to get pictures tomorrow.
