    A friend bought our chickens for us, so we have no idea what their breed/gender is, but they're SUPPOSED to be all female. Based on my research, this is a Golden Comet, but I have no idea. I'm also worried about the gender, since this chick has very large and pink comb and wattles, and also is bolder than the rest and likes to fight. Help for a newbie? Sorry about the not-so-great quality of the picture.

    It isn't a golden comet.

    Hard to tell what breed chicks are, at this point, but it is not a golden comet sex link.

    It is indeed a cockerel.

    It looks kind of like a buff orpington, and it may well be a rooster. Sexing is only 90% accurate, so accidents do happen. Still, they're fantastic birds. My buff orp rooster is a sweetheart.
