    I have 14 chicks that are 5 weeks old. They sent me an extra easter egger. I've started noticing that he/she acts and looks a little different. I didn't order one but would be happy to have a rooster ;-) it has 3 distinct rows on the comb and it's a reddish color. Red is also on the body. What do you think??

    Hi there! From your picture it is hard to tell what you have. Could you get a picture of your chick standing naturally without flash? It could be too young to accurately tell at this point but we can try.

    And welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Thanks, a few people I know locally think its a roo so thats why I wanted to post it here and get your help. This chick tries to herd the other chickens and always waits till everyone eats then it will eat. I just thought that was a little odd, but maybe its completely normal for a pullet to do that. :)

    That is a rooish behaviour. But it is very young and for the Moment your chick looks girlish.
