I got two chicks about.... 4-5 weeks ago I think. The barred rock I'm certain is a dude but I also got a Rhode Island Red. Thinking it would be good to have ones I can easily distinguish from each other. So now I wonder what's the RIRs gender. It and the barred rock, who I now call Xigbar, developed differently but I know different breeds probably develop differently.... I didn't think my idea all the way through when I got them. The combs look different to me so I want to hope the RIR is female but again I'm on the fence. Even the wings look different to me. Any ideas? If they are both roosters how long before they hate each other? I've grown attached to them! ): I also got some chicks! 4 EE and 3 Golden comets. I guess this wasn't enough because they sent me 13 extra mystery chicks. Most of which I assume are barred rock males. But this one is smaller and weirdly colored.... What is it?
