    OK I finally have a chick for you all to look at. This is just a 3 week old as of today I think its a roo because of the comb, wings and tail just now coming in. This was a pullet only order but this one and one other have these combs and tiny tails compared to all the other. Most of the others have pointed wings and much longer tails and combs are not this big. So I am wrong in thinking this is a male? It is a partridge rock.

    Boy, even under his feathers thems huge FEETS, and the comb and no tail are dead giveaways.

    I was really hoping I was right. I want it to be a roo so bad.

    Feet on all of them are big and so are the legs. These are some really nice chicks I believe they came from a breeder that was selling to the hatchery.
