    This is a 3 week old EE chick, we are thinking it is a roo. It is bigger than our other chick of the same breed. We are new to raising chicks, can y'all confirm if it is a roo?

    I'll be in the barn!
    I am guessing you have a future rooster on your hands....

    Given the size of that comb, I would also put my money behind it being a rooster.
