Thanks for the advice on identifying with a red comb. I have sex links that I know are roos but a couple of "Reds" (whatever they are) and two have combs but are very light cream color. I thought they might be roos but they aren't doing any chest butting and their combs are not even pink like the SL's so maybe not. I bought them as pullets so maybe they all are.
Definitely 1 cockerel, and 2 pullets. And to save you from second guessing future chicks, when trying to identify gender, if a chick under 8 weeks old develops a very bright pink comb, it's a cockerel. Pullets do not start to pink up until they are close to laying eggs, regardless of breed.
Thank you! That is great info to have for next year...
