We bought these chickens from a local tracker supply 5 weeks ago. I believe they were only 1.5 weeks old when we got them.

They told us they were all sexed female Golden Comets…

As chicks the two looked extremely similar, but one was always larger and became significantly larger in short order. (The bird in the top image grew much faster).

So here we are, 6-7 weeks of age, and we are wondering y’alls thoughts on whether the larger bird is a Comet Rooster or a hen but a different breed….

Any thoughts?

The first one is a cockerel and not a golden comet.
