    the one in question is the farthest away in the pic. the tail feathers sit completely diff (stand upright way more), and that one has a comb already, and is red around the eyes. the one closer seems to only be starting to grow a comb and its still white/pink, and she is the off white skin around the eyes, and tail sits flat. they are from same clutch supposedly. I am just hoping that my new girl "Nuggets" is a girl and not a boy. I only want egg layers right now since where i live i am not even supposed to have any chickens lol so i def dont need any Roo's making noise out here [​IMG]

    It's tail is bigger which is a sign in most breeds that it is a male - I would guess that you are right but would need a better picture to confirm that. MW
