    I have a 7 week old, 5 week old, and two 3 week olds. The younger ones just had their combs turn much redder than the older ones and it made me question their sex. Would anyone like to hazard a guess?

    I'd guess those two younger birds are cockerels based on their pink combs. The other two appear to be pullets though, but they are pretty young still...

    Thanks guys! I wasn't wanting any roos, but after seeing a few pics of them on the barnevelder breeder board, those are some handsome birds!
