    Hello everyone! I'm a new chicken mama and loving it but of course i have some questions. I have 11 chicks and the first 6 i got at tractor supply. Five of them are supposed to be red sex link pullets but i suspect one could be a rooster (I'm sure i could be wrong). He is feathering in all white with a little cream coloring while the others are turning brown. He also has a much bigger comb than the others. Can anyone tell? He's almost 3 weeks old. [​IMG]

    I'm not certain but because of his coloring, I would say he is a cockerel. You can also post his photos at "what breed or gender is this." to get more opinions

    Thank you. ..I've been looking on this site for a while and finally decided to just join. I hope he will be a rooster because he's very friendly.

    In my experience, little boys are bolder and more friendly when they are young - they don't often stay that way though [​IMG]

    I would say he's a cockerel feathering in that white. Time will tell
