    This baby is the largest (and prettiest) of my chicks, probably around 18 days old. Her comb has gotten pinker all of a sudden and it is getting bumpy where none of the others are. Is she a roo?

    Here's a side picture of her/him too but I don't think it will help much.

    Way Too Young to tell gender. Come back in a few months. [​IMG]

    Okay, thanks for your insight. I will wait patiently until the girls are MUCH older before I worry about it. [​IMG]
