    [​IMG] This is my 3 week old barred rock chick. This one had a major growth spurt and comb is getting very red. I cannot have roos in my city limits. I am desperately hoping this one turns out to be a pullet.

    [​IMG] That's a lot of comb development on a young chick - I'm guessing cockerel.

    At what point do young cockerels begin to crow? This is my first time raising chicks. Have a lot left to learn.

    I had some people said on here were Roosters, but they are laying eggs now. I would just wait to make sure.


    But it is a big comb.....
