    Hi, I am new here and i wasn't sure where to post this...
    We have 10 chickens, about 8 weeks old. We only have 2 RIRs, and one of them has a much, much larger comb than all of the other girls... what do you guys think? 'She'also has darker feathers around the base of her neck and her tail looks different... ugh lol

    Hi, thats a lot of comb and wattle development for a girl, so i'd say its a boy.

    At 8 weeks anything with that much red in the comb and wattles is a boy

    Looks like "she" is developing saddle feathers, which will make for an awfully pretty "he". Just my two cents . . .
