    This is supposed to be a cinnamon queen pullet (sex linked breed for anyone unaware) 20181212_153925.jpg 20181212_153917.jpg . It is about a month old. Do they get big combs at red waddles young? It looks pretty cockerel like to me. The other three look like typical young pullet chicks.

    I was going to send a pic of mine to compare, but mine had a rose comb. :/
    That's a cockerel.
    Not a CQ, though. Males are whitish.
    Where did you get them?

    From my friend who got like 30 of them from a professional breeder. I was doubting their cinnomon queen ness because there was a variety of colors. Several of hers look like cockerels too. Maybe they misunderstood him. I've bought other chicks from him with no problems.

    That much comb at 4 weeks......Cockerel.
    I think CW males have more white on them.

    I wonder if they are second generation Cinnamon Queens? If the breeder bred a Cinnamon Queen rooster to Cinnamon Queen hens they won't be sexlinked. That's certainly a cockerel regardless of what breed.

    I'm not sure what happened. He's been professional with me and he's has his breeding business for quite a while. He raises a variety of breeds. I'm more concerned for my friends because they paid for pullets and obviously didn't get them. They gave me 4 free chicks, so I'm not out anything. I told them to talk to him. I wasn't all that familiar with the breed, so I wasn't 100% when I saw them as chicks, but it was fishy.

    Maybe give him a call. He might want to know. If his end product is not what he was hoping for/ telling people he just might not know and made a honest mistake.

    Cockerel. Post pics when fully feathered to better determine the breed or mix. Not a CQ.
