    I got 4 of these Bantams from TSC and they all look identical. Any idea to what they may be or any way to tell gender at this point? They are 3 weeks old.

    Thanks! Anything specific to tell the difference between a Hen or Roo at this point? I have 4 of these babes and can't tell a thing different between the 4 at this point.

    If you watch their feather development, females should feather out faster then males. Males will start showing red/pink in their comb soon.

    I have four OEGBs, now about seven and eight weeks old. You'll be able to tell VERY soon if any are males - they get wattles and bigger combs much sooner than the females.

    I have 2 of them and both are roos. They are about 4 weeks old and I pinpointed them as roos @2 weeks because their combs were a bit pinkish. Since then, their combs are now fairly good sized and red. Oh, and they like to chest-bump a lot which made me wonder as well. That said, I say you have a pullet. [​IMG]
