    This chick is my favorite of the batch. Very precocious, and nosey! Gets very perturbed whenever I change the water and pecks the heck outta me. Possibly a roo? I hope so, I know most folks don't want them but I would like one roo out of my group. About 5 weeks old

    Sorry, not seeing any blatant cockerel signs there - looks like a pretty little pullet.

    Is that a pea comb? Can you post a better shot of the comb?

    I'll try to get a better pic today, it is a pea comb but I have one of the same breed with what looks like more of a rose comb, and that one has been slower to develop than the other. If the little stinkers will hold still I'll get a few more pic later today! Thanks all
