    I have a month old chick that has a bigger wattle than all the other chicks I hatched with it. I need help figuring out if it is a pullet or a cockerel!

    I think it looks like a pullet, but I could be wrong. I'm new at this too. :)

    I'll be in the barn!
    Having so much red in the comb at that age, I'm saying cockerel. Since it'd be about 4 weeks, I think a pullet would have a much smaller comb at that age.

    I have 5 others that are the same age but they all have small, non-red combs

    They are most likely pullets then and this one is a handsome little cockerel.
