We bought these chicks together! They are about 3.5 weeks old but one is much larger than the other one!
Please if you have any ideas if this could be a rooster?! She is huge compared to her sister!!

She does not look like a boy yet.
Feathering rate is similar, combs are similar, size is the only difference......hmmmmm

Still a bit young but I think both are female.
The size difference is dramatic. All the males I have ever had did not grow that differently from the females.

Weird possibility.... The small one is bantam perhaps??

Could she just be older than the other one and just the guy got it wrong?!
How old does she appear to look?! I'm new at this!
