This is my first time around with chicks, so I'd love a little help looking at my 5 week old Wyandotte. We got her from a sexed batch, but I know that isn't always 100% accurate. Last week we noticed she has small raised bumps on the backs of her legs that could be the start of spurs though I know that hens can have spur buds too. Her comb is quite red, and she's showing wattles already, which are also quite red. But her hackle and saddle feathers look fairly round. So I'm thoroughly confused. See pictures below (obviously, she's the dark chick in the pics) - thanks for your help!
