    One of my local feed stores sold me this chicken. I was intending to purchase a rooster to raise with my flock, but I think I have a pullet. This is Chris Brown, my 17 week old Rhode Island Red. I've seen a few pictures of roosters his age, and they have a huge red comb and wattles. What do you think?

    I would say rooster, I can see rooster-like feathers growing.

    He's a cockerel. The comb may be small and pale, but I see some rooster feathers coming in.

    This past week, his saddle feathers have grown in! Definitely a rooster!
