So it's 4:30 AM and I heard something crash in the basement where my brooder is set up and thought oh dear, ran down there to make sure one hadn't flown out. Well, one hadn't flown out but I did notice one of my biggest chicks had started to develop a comb. It was only maybe a millimeter in length but I never noticed it before. How do I know if my girl is really a boy? I've heard hens will grow combs too, but will they grow them this early? Well all of them were fine, who knows what the crash was. I'll try to get pictures some time later today but I'm going to try to go back to sleep now.... even though now I have a boy to worry about. Thank you.
