    Hey Guys, it's my first time owning chickens, and while browsing the forums i became curious to either or not one of my "hens" is a rooster or not. I got them all at the same time at Big R, so they should be the same age, which is 10 weeks (about). Below is some pictures. Sorry about the horrible picture quality, taken with my cell phone. Thanks!

    Here is the one i'm wondering about. Could it just be more matured than the others?
    it's comb and wattle is far bigger than the others.

    And here's my new hampshire red hen, to give a comb and wattle size difference. the third austrolorps is photo shy;)

    At 10 weeks I'm saying 1 is a cockerel, 2 is a pullet and 3 is a possible cockerel, but looking more like a pullet :)
