    New to chickens. Do waddles automatically mean rooster. I have 16 of all different breeds and comb and waddles on a lot

    [​IMG] Ducks waddle/ chickens have wattles and combs. Both hens and roosters have combs and wattles. Generally the wattles and combs on roosters are larger and start developing earlier than those on pullets or hens.
