    I'm unsure about this one.. this is my first time hatching chicks so I have no experience telling male from female but I have 3 Blue Orpingtons & one has a really large red comb and wattle and you can definitely tell he's a rooster.. one has no color to it's comb/wattle I'm guessing it's a hen..but this one is in between the two. Red but not nearly as large as the other guys. What do you think? I'm praying it's not a rooster.

    You can see the Rooster in the corner there.. the comb and wattles are much bigger
