    I'm sure I'll get better at telling by this baby is 4 weeks and I'm nervous about how much bigger she is and now she getting a pretty red set of waddles . And her legs are pretty big. What do you guys think? [​IMG]

    Looks like a rooster
    He has a huge head!
    But you won't know until he/is at least 3 months old
    Birds with rose combs are harder to tell if they are roos. Birds with single combs their combs start growing faster than the females

    GLW? Doesn't look like a rooster to me but you could try posting another picture when it is 12 weeks old.

    Yeah glw. She's just so much bigger than the others and seems more confident. I guess I'll have to wait and see. Thanks
