    This is one of my new babies, Pearl. She's 4 weeks old tomorrow. We got 4 at 2 days old. I think 2 are roosters, one a hen but not sure about this little cutie. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That seems like a lotta comb going on at 4 weeks. I'd say cockerel.

    yep, it's all about that comb! Cockerel no doubt.
    Gonna have to find a new name for Pearl.

    BUGGER! Does it make a difference that 2 of the other 3, all from the same batch, have wider, thicker and lumpier combs? I hoped being such a difference that they may be roosters and (p)earl would be a hen? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
     

  8. You can post side by side pics for comparison. [​IMG]

    I have some wishful thinking of my own going on. [​IMG]

    2 of the others have this comb. This is why I hoped Pearl would be a hen
