    posted this on a different thread but no one answered so I'm posting it here as well

    ok so I have 7 hens(we think), and 1 rooster(we think). so it's obvious that we have a rooster already, he has shiney feathers, huge comb, crowing, ect. but, my mom thinks we have another rooster bc it's growing a larger comb faster than the other hens. so, I'm just asking some experts to prove my mom wrong! lol, pics below..

    so here's the hen(mom thinks is a rooster)

    and here's our rooster

    The first bird (the one your mom thinks is a rooster) ... is a PULLET. She is just maturing faster than your others...not to worry.
