    I ordered two Partridge Rock pullets from Ideal and I'm starting to wonder about this one. It's 5 weeks old:

    If it was a male, shouldn't its juevinile feathers have been different? Its feather pattern looks like a female but the comb and wattles scream rooster.

    Body/feather wise it looks just like the other one. But the second Partridge Rock barely has any comb.

    I've been hearing a weak crowing in the morning, and have narrowed it down to this one, and one of my Barred Rocks that looks suspicious.
