    We have 4 young chickens (4.5 months old) and one has much larger comb than the rest and we are trying to determine if it is characteristic of the breed of if we have a male on our hands.

    Trying to determine the sex of the chicken. Any ideas help! Thanks!

    Also, I should mention that this is the only bird of this breed... the four are all different breeds. So when I say the comb is much larger than the others, keep in mind they are different breeds.

    Our four girls (we hope):
