Hi! This is my first post here, and also my first time raising chicks! One hen that we got has developed a much, much larger comb and wattles than the other four hens we have. I just want to ensure that this chicken is actually a hen, because I am not able to have a rooster within the city limits, where I live. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, and I have attached a picture for reference! They are all about 2 months old (give or take a couple weeks, time has been flying by)
Thank you very much!

is this a different breed/mix than the other pullets? I have had Leghorn Pullets look roosters at this age. My mother even once told me that I had all roosters when looking at my leghorn flock as I handed her the eggs they laid lol. She was raised around chickens but never took an interest in them. So she only half knew what made a rooster different. Anyways its still possible its a pullet if its mostly leghorn and the others are not. I would still guess Cockerel.
