    I thought for sure that I had a rooster but, Im starting to have some doubts. My Splash is 12 weeks old. The pics arent that good but, hopefully they will work.

    I'm not sure how you could doubt that is a rooster.........that much comb, that red at that age is always a boy. Even a leghorn pullet won't have that red a comb at this age! And for good measure, he's getting hackle feathers.
