    My chicks are almost 6 weeks old. I'm particularly worried about my BR (and my NH Red). My BR is sweet, friendly, and has the female coloration. Her legs have the dark stripe. Yet, her comb is pinky-yellow and is starting to develop wattles!! Should I be worried? Sorry, I can't get pics right now, no camera.

    This is the same for the NH Red, except she's skittish, and doesn't have anything distinctly "female" about her. (I ordered them as sexed LF from MPC, so I'm not sure why I would have any roosters. Just checking.) Also, her comb is bigger and pinker than the BR's.
    Should I be worried?
