    Hi,

    I have a 14 week old Aracana cross road Island red it which we thought was a hen but now I am not so sure. It is the same size as my other chickens and they all hatched at the same time but it has now grown a comb slightly bigger than the others (not by much though) But the thing that is different is the colour it is much more red than the others. Below is a picture of the chicken in question,one with the others and one by herself. If anyone has any thoughts that will enlighten me it would be much appreciated.

    Regards
    Alli
