    Our local feed store was having a hard time getting chicks and then got this order of "brown egg laying chickens" and since I was on a roll with hatching roo's I grabbed some. And then I see one who's comb is growing way too much but I don't know the breed so I'm hoping that's the reason. Chick is 3 weeks old. My 3 year old grandson pointed at this chick and said "Mimi, dat's a wooster!" [​IMG] that would be funny if I didn't think he was right! [​IMG] My 5 year old grandson held the suspect for me while I took pictures and said that after the people call me and tell me if it's a girl or a boy and what kind of chicken it is, I'm supposed to call him. He doesn't quite have the concept of forums yet! [​IMG]

    These are blurry but thought could be of some help

    Not sure of the breed, but it sure looks like a roo to me! Maybe a leghorn?

    That is most certainly NOT a pullet. Grandson is right, that's a wooster!

    Hard to tell breed in the pictures - a side body shot would be best.

    OMG, you guys just make me laugh out loud! Well.....until I remember that my roo streak is still in full swing.....guess I'll have to call my grandson's in the morning and give them the consensus. Anyone disagree? Anyone? Please? [​IMG]
