I know, it's probably not worth posting without a picture, but I'm the world's worst picture taker and even worse than that about posting them.

I have four chicks, all approximately 4-4 1/2 weeks old. One Cherry Egger, one BO and two EEs. The Cherry Egger is supposed to be a pullet (was in the pullet bin) but she has a much bigger comb than the other three chicks. I know EEs have pea combs so theirs won't be as big in any case, but her(?) comb is much bigger than the BOs and she appears to be growing teeny little wattles too.

Did I get a cockerel?
I know, time will tell, but I wanna know NOW darn it.

Yeah, I know. I was just wondering if it's typical for a Cherry Egger to have a fairly well developed comb at this age compared to the other breeds I have. I am a total chicken newbie.
