    These Silver Spangled Hamburg babies are 3 weeks old and virtually over night, one of them developed a comb that looks much darker, larger and more prominent than the other two. Is it a roo? I'm in denial b/c I want to keep them all but can't keep a roo. [​IMG] This is the earliest I've ever seen a comb differentiation in chicks, so I'm a little surprised and still hopeful that I'm wrong!

    Hopefully not, maybe she meant a breeding trio, two hens and a rooster? [​IMG]
