    Hey guys,

    We have 17 birds in all right now. This is our first time having a mixed flock (in the past is was just isa browns) and this production red here is throwing me a curveball. It has not crowed at all but it is much larger than the other two reds that we have, and its tail feathers are a little more pointy. Also its comb and waddle are a brighter red than the other two.

    This bird is around 16 weeks old. I apologize for my original post, i was using my phone and accidently hit the submit button lol, one of the photos you can see another red in the background, this one is larger and its tail feathers are upright and its comb/waddle are larger

    He hasn't crowed yet. We are kind of hoping its a roo since we dont have one yet and want to hatch our own eggs so that we can stop depending on the farm store. I guess time will tell!
