So we hatched 5 chicks, same Blue Ameraucana dad but possibly all different moms, not sure.
We believe that we ended up with 3 hens and 2 roos, but this "hen" has me second guessing.
She's stockier than the other two hens and bossier. Her comb is getting reddish faster than the other two, but I'm new to this so I'm not sure what kind of comb that she's getting. So I would love some experienced opinions! :)

Yes, I'm leaning toward roo on this bird as well. I'm still not sure though, Can you get a close up of the comb?

Do most of you say that because of the comb? Or are there other indicators? Just curious. I am learning so much from the community on this website!!
