    I've got 3 different types of chickens, two of each. I'm posting my barred rock and Rhode Island reds which are all the same age. Buttercup (the one I think may be a Roo) is considerably larger than the other 3 and this morning her pink comb is now a bright red comb and waddle.

    With a comb that big I say cockerel but its coloring and is legs (the black wash on them) is a indication of pullet. [​IMG]

  4. Look like a roo to me. The redness of the waddles and comb makes me think cockerel, but I'm not certain.
     
  5. Doubting myself, it looks exactly like a pullet with those legs(shout out to whoever else said that above). Maybe it's just an early bloomer pullet?

    AGREE, this one is really difficult to pin point. BR look to be Cockerels with the comb & wattle but not sure, including the RIR. This one needs a re-take in about 2 - 3 wks.
