    This is my Rhode Island Red Paprika! "She" is sooo cute and loving but is growing a comb pretty quick... what do you think?

    Is she/he older in the last two pictures? I'm leaning towards cockerel right now.

    I can't really tell from the pictures, is it's comb pink, or is it still yellow? :fl

    At three weeks, that comb is pretty pink! Looking like a cockerel!

    Yellow is good, but it's still an awfully big comb.... I think I'm leaning toward cockerel right now. Keep watching, if it's comb gets much bigger and gets any pinker before it's 6 weeks or so that's a pretty strong sign of a cockerel. Could you post more pics in a couple of weeks?

    Comb looks like a cockrel and by the coloring cockrel. Hope it’s a pullet though. :fl
