    7 wk old Buff Orp. Got it the same time as all my other chicks and none of them have the comb and wattle development as this one. HELP. Looking for some confirmation before rehoming it to a local hatchery. Thanks!

    Wait a bit longer if you can, but it is most likely a cockerel.

    Here they all are. Pic from last night. Our cat loves them so much!
    The chicken in question is the one on the left.

    The hatchery we are trying to send him to isn't the one we got him from. It's a family farm just outside of Dallas. Seems nice. Better than some alternatives.

    He looks like a cockerel with the reddening in his comb and wattles at 7 weeks. :(
