    This is our California White 6 week old chick. Its comb is growing much quicker than our other three chicks (ameraucana, black australorp, and red star). I know leghorns have larger combs than my other breeds, but could Bibi be a Boby? What do you think?

    I don't have a great current side-view picture, but here is the best I have at the same age...

    Can you get a better idea from the side shot?

    Thank you, one and all, for helping me out! It turns out that Bibi in fact was a cockerel! Because our city has a "no rooster" ordinance, we had to find an adoptive home for him. Luckily, we found a nice little farm, where Bibi will be replacing a 5 year old Ameracauna rooster. He will soon be the leader of a harem of 7! I believe he will be very happy. :)

    Just thought I'd give everyone an update! Here is Bibi at about 18 weeks! He's quite the rooster! His adoptive family loves him! They say that he took on the rooster role very quickly!
