    I am new to raising chickens, I bought my first chicks a few weeks ago. They are Dominiques, they were supposed to be all female, but I'm relatively certain one is male ... Any guesses out there ? The one in question grew long tail feathers early which are now drooping downwards, the other 2 are just starting to grow their tail feathers and seem to be growing out in a different fashion. This chick is also the first one to the cage door when opened and starts pecking my hand, no combs are developing as yet, one is just beginning to get pink on the ridge on their beak. Any help would be great !! Pics attached....

    Out to pasture
    Also need to see them standing naturally in profile - pictures don't show leg color etc. Too small (photos) to see details.
