    Here are the chicks I hatched from Cynthia's eggs, and some from Catalpa last Thanksgiving. They're 3-4 months old. I don't see a rooster amongst them, but please tell me you do! The one with the longer wattles is the same one as in the last picture.

    The middle one has pretty large wattles, but hard to say unless I can see the saddle feathers better. Let me save the pic and see if I can lighten it up and zoom in on that area, okay?
    I did and you could have a slow developing cockerel or fast developing pullet, LOL. Here's a pic of Suede at 12 weeks old, then at 13 weeks, to compare. From their dad's picture, I'd say you probably have a fast developing pullet:

    Well actually, Suede was the one with no tail for the longest time-it got to be a joke around BYC. The girls had tails and he didn't. Here's Suede maybe slightly older than yours:
