    Hi all, this is my newest addition and I was told she was female; however, this week I have been getting a little concerned that she might in fact be a male. I posted pics already and most said she is probably a "she" but still might be too early to tell for sure. Well, now I noticed that she is stretching her neck out like she is attempting to crow but nothing comes out, it usually only happens after she wakes up from a nap and is accompanied with stretching. Do chicks yawn? or is something else going on?? [​IMG]Thank you in advance for the help!!

    She has a tiny comb so far looking like a pullet. Chickens adjust their crops often by stretching the neck. What breed is she?
