Our three new chicks are coming along nicely, but I noticed right off on the Wyandotte the development of the comb and wattles was far more advanced than the other two, even after a week of having them. I was reading this morning that roos develop their combs and wattles sooner than pullets. Does anyone have any experience with this? Here's a picture and the chick is barely a month old. The other two have not even started growing their combs and wattles yet. Am I raising a meat bird sooner than I expected to? Sorry for the picture quality.
If I have a rooster, I am really disappointed because the Wyandotte was the one I was really excited about having.
