    I got 4 chicks a few weeks ago at our local feed store. Sometimes I look at them and think cock a doodle doo, other times I just see girls and can't believe I thought otherwise. One of them looked like he/she was getting a little pink, but I now think it may have gotten a small cut and bled... they like to try and fly. Anyone want to take some guesses? They are supposed to be Buff Orpington pullets.

    EDIT- The links didn't work...

    Here is the group:

    They all look equal to me - that is, they are all at the same stage of comb color and wing/tail feather growth. If one lags behind the others in wing/tail feather growth, and their comb starts to turn pink before the others, it might be a roo.

    The nagging doubt has been cast aside, for now. Thanks for the input! Now, off to make a coop...
