    I got my two chickens in the first week of January and was told they were both female and that they were about 3 to 4 weeks old. Im starting to worry that one of them is male though. No crowing but her comb and waddle are bigger and redder than her sister's.[​IMG]

  4. Can I see his/her sisters comb and waddles? I think he is a rooster though. [​IMG]
