    I am so confused- I thought for sure it was a little roo until I started looking at pictures of roosters and hens....
    Please help.
    Hatched May 12th- from a layer mix from Meyer hatchery.

    The comb is flesh colored, no red. All pale.
    Thanks.

    That is a definite roo, my roosters combs did not turn dark red until about 16 weeks. The hens combs stay small until about the time they lay there first egg and then it will start growing dark red as well and fold over one side of there face. That is a difinite roo tho.
