    I can't find my camera cord, sorry no picture!!

    I think I have a silver sebright (I know, I need a picture!!)
    Definitely has a rose comb coming in, my first chicken with rose comb, but it seems huge! It is very wide and looks wider and bigger than pictures I have seen online,
    Does that mean she is a rooster??

    Probably. Adult female Sebrights have very small combs. At 4 weeks a female would show virtually no comb.

    Yep, My male has a huge, wide red comb. My female has barely any comb at all, and it's still black colored. I would say yours is a male.
