hi! i'm not exactly new here, having lurked for a long time, learning a whole lot from BYC on the whole and also enjoying this forum as a way to learn about sexing and breeds. i have a RIR who has set up alarm bells from the start, quick comb development and general cockerel behavior: protection, bossy behavior. his legs are thicker than the others. i noticed with some of the other RIRs from the southern states i got him from also had early combs, so i tried not to think about it too much. however, he's sorta old enough for me to ask here (finally!). thoughts?
