    I hatched this "gal" out about 5 weeks ago from an EE mommy and a barred rock dad. Im pretty sure its a roo...but please prove me wrong [​IMG] It does not have a large comb but it is quite pink and his legs are rather large....

    Yeah, it's a boy. The boys get the wide comb and very prominent "bumps" quickly.
