    OK so i got this chick at Tractor Supply Co. and im pretty sure its a male, although i thought Tractor Supply only sold females. it was the featured breed which is a Black Sex link. i know that Black Sex link males have a white dot on thier head, but i also read that if the conditions are right, males and females can look the same. The reason i think he is a male is because he is getting huge tail feathers, a comb, lot o ffeathers, and a rooster-like attitude. he also has a wierd thing on his back toes wich i think i either a deformitie or is just something that roosters have. can someone please help me?! By the way, his name is wesley.[​IMG]
