    I've named her Harriett because I was told it was a pullet but now that her comb is way bigger than the other chicks I'm wondering if Harriett is really a Harry?? Also if anyone could tell me what breed you think she is?

    This pic was taken at about 5 weeks.

    Uhoh, I'm thinking maybe rooster! Looks like a barred rock cross.

    Harry, and I agree with Kanchii, a BR cross.

    I'm new to chickens too and have 14 chicks about 6 weeks old, in that group we got 3 barred rocks and one was starting to look more like a rooster (like yours in the picture) than the others... I suspected he was a rooster but wasn't sure, but now I know! I think mine might be crosses of some sort too. Their coloring isn't even... although he's the prettiest of the three.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Thank you everybody! I was really wanting a chicken named Harriett so I guess I'll have to wait for his first born daughter!!
