Can anyone give me any tips on how to sex a pekin bantam chick? we've just hatched our own and they are coming up to 2 weeks old so if anyone has any insight that would be great! I read somewhere something about 2 rows of feathers and 4 rows of feathers but not sure what exactly I'm looking for so if anyone could help I'd be very grateful!

Two weeks is way too early. By six weeks, if any combs are big and pink - boys. It's really the same for all single combed breeds. My females have always had a very small comb up until point of lay. My boy never had a huge comb (we're talking pekin or cochin here only) until he was a good 16 weeks old, but it was pink very early.
