    I have a few Dixie Rainbow's in my surprise mix from McMurray. They have more multi-colored feathers and much bigger/redder combs and wattles. 4 weeks old today (for sure boys were getting wattles at the end of week 3!)
    Is this guy/gal a Dixie Rainbow as well? Or something else?
    SWEETEST chicken, of course...practically purrs when you hold him/her and pet softly!

    Seriously, the nicest, most inquisitive, friendly and calm birds I have. SO HOPING I have at least one Pullet. I think I have two pullets (if this is one) and three roosters.
    Fingers crossed this is a Pullet!!!

    It is definitely a Dixie Rainbow (Pioneer) chick.

    My guess is pullet, but it's too early to know for sure yet.
