    I really have no idea as this is my first experience with chickens. I think it's a boy because he/she has the largest comb out of all 25 chicks. He/she will be 4 weeks on Wednesday.

    It's getting awfully pinkish for being so young, so definitely a little boy. Girls won't go pink for a few months. [​IMG]

    Are its legs noticably thicker than the others? I'm thinking Roo though!

    And I'm thinking pullet, because all the back and wing feathers are in. Roos develop those feathers last, and then the tail feathers.

    Quote:I looked at that too to compare. But no it's legs are the same size as all the others.

    I don't want any roos. I got all 25 of my chicks from McMurray. I hope they got it 100% right! What are the chances of that! LOL!
