    Hello everyone! Quick question, I'm pretty sure the one with the bigger comb here is a cockerel but I would appreciate some help. The other one is a sister from the same batch for comparison. I'm pretty sure she's a pullet. They are Road Island Reds

    Edit: They are at about 7 weeks or 8 weeks old

    You're correct, the bird with the large, pink comb/wattles is a cockerel.
