    Here's a pic of my 4 week old, (s)he's an ideal production white. I'm thinking it's a boy and DH has already re-named him/her Foghorn, but wanted some other opinions. [​IMG]

    It looks like my production white pullets at 5 weeks old. Remember they have bigger combs and they are bred to mature fast.

    You should have had a toothbrush under its foot in the first pic. That would be a funny pic. [​IMG]

    Okay, here (s)he is at 7 weeks....

    [​IMG]

    No major change or reddening of comb, but his/her tail feathers are super long compared to any of my others, and posture seems different (tried to get a pic but (s)he wouldn't cooperate).

    Any more thoughts?!?!?
