    Delaware???? Purchased several chicks at our local feedstore. These are the first chicks we've ever had. I'm guessing 3 are Delawares, 2 are black sex links, 2 EE's and 3 I have no idea what they are. I'm thinking this one may be a rooster as his/her waddles are pretty red and the other 2 i have aren't. Also comb appears red to me, but I'm new to this and have no idea! Help!!!! Will be 4 weeks old on Friday. Tail feathers are also shorter on this one than the other 2 and appears pretty "smutty" between wings, but so does one of the others I have, but her waddles are not red neither is the comb and her comb is much smaller. Thoughts?!?

    I'm not familiar with Delawares to comment on breed, but at 4 weeks, that is definitely a roo.

    Yeah, to have that much pink and still a fuzzy head I'd say Roo also. Breed, I don't know.
