    This chick came out of the "Red Pullets" bin at Tractor Supply. Does her comb look a bit big to anyone else? I'm worried she's a he.

    Give us some more pictures please! Im aiming towards that this one is a rooster. I might be wrong though! The chick looks kinda young... you should wait until he or she gets a little bit older! Then it becomes easier to tell![​IMG]

    And, while it's not a defining characteristic of gender, I'd like to note that this is the LOUDEST chick I have ever had. You can see him/her squawking away in the last picture. No chirps. SQUAWKS!

    Production Red rooster. It's a bit early to tell for sure, but he sure stands like a little dude.
