    The one on the right. I noticed "her" this morning... "Her" comb looks bigger and is already turning a shade of pink. My other chickens didn't turn so pink until they were long out of the brooder. :/ Early bloomer?? Or rooster...

    I suspect a rooster in your midst. Are his legs much thicker than the other chick? Another couple weeks will reveal much. Are they cornish? How old?

    I can't really see a difference in their legs. They're pearl leghorns...it is a little hard to tell though [​IMG] ...they're in that weird squirrely stage. They're about nine days short of being a month old.

    btw "she" is really scittish, she's forever running around like a nut. jumping all over the place and on top everything. And when I take her out everyone else calms right down... If that helps any.
