    The wattles are the reddish skin "flaps" under the beak. The comb is at the top of the head.
    Your chick is looking a bit rooish. Keep an eye on it.

    I'm having mixed feelings. I think roo because of the pinnkish red colored comb, but I also see the potential of it being a pullet. Give it a few weeks then share an updated picture of him/her. :)

    Thank you! Definitely will do. We already lost two of our reds who were definite Roos from our flock and were devastated (they're illegal in our city d/t zoning.) I'm really hoping to have at least 1 or 2 pullets from each breed.

    I'm begining to think this bantam (possibly D'Anvers) is a young cockerel. About 5 weeks in age. Both pictures are the same bird.
