    These are all my RIR chicks, #4 doesnt have a good pic of its head but it is the only one that the comb doesnt seem to be as big as the rest and it has long tail feathers. None of the others tail feathers have really grown in yet.

    It's too hard to tell from pics when the comb gets larger and tinted pink it's a rooster check back in 2 weeks with good pics
