    I have three babies, two of them are 6wks and one of them is 5 wks, well one of my babies has no comb but is the biggest and has huge legs and feet the other two have bright red combs developing but they are small compared to my other baby. Does this have anything to do with thier sex or is it just a fluke and I have a giant chick and 2 small ones?!?! I could have sworn that my big chick was a roo but now I'm thinking it's just giant!!! lol help me I'm confused![​IMG]


    Sorry the pics are crappy, it's night here and my camera isn't behaving

    You didn`t mention breed, but it sounds like you have two cockerals of one breed(maybe bantam) and a pullet of a large breed.......P

    It could have to do with the breed

    or not! [​IMG]

    My two cochins - both pullets - were different sizes for months. Now they are nearly identical. Go figure.

    At that age you can't predict much of anything based on comb and wattles. What breed are they?

    They are a mix of Phoenixs, and wild jungle fowl, I live in Guam so they are a combo of the fighting cocks people have brought in and the resident jungle fowl. I will post pics so you can see, they are pretty birds!!! I found the eggs in a nest that had been driven over and incubated the ones that were not crushed.
