    I suspect she is a HE, because of the reddish comb and row of feathers down the back. What do you all think?

    Enjoy your little roo. I'm kinda partial to my boys, just don't tell the girls that.

    He is 4 weeks old. He was always bigger than the others, but I didn't think much of it. Then the comb started growing in larger than the others and had a reddish color to it. I haven't heard any crowing yet, which I guess comes later. He is really the sweetest chick I have, and not skittish like the rest. I have 6 chicks, so having one rooster isn't so bad.
