    Hi I am new to chickens. I bought some young chicks that were sexed for pullets but I think that my NH red is a rooster. Right now she ( hopefully ) is 4 1/2 weeks. Tell me what you think.

    Some just get a much bigger comb than others. I have had a few hens that started with a bigger comb and it freaked me out too. Do you find its behavior different too?
    Can you post a pic of one of the others you dont think is a roo?

    I only have one NH red so I don't have anything to compare it too. The behavior to me seems like a roo but these are my first chickens. So I can't tell. I really hope its a she.
