    Not sure if I am just being paranoid... but this little Bantam Frizzle's comb has been peeking out more and more. She (wishful thinking) is just over 2 weeks old and is the only of my little group to even show the tiniest comb. She was a sexed Bantam from MPC --this I know isn't a perfect science! [​IMG]

    Are there any clues to watch for as chickens age to determine sex. I have a Campine as well who is getting a little suspicious. Obviously, no matter what I will wait for the crow or the egg. But I find I am getting more and more attached to these silly little chicks and the thought of giving one away is getting harder!! No roosters in this little backyard flock -- town rules [​IMG] Thanks for help!

    I think it's still too early for you to tell, but keep an eye out for redness in the comb and face. I suspected that one of my sexed RIR pullets was a male, and sure enough...ROO! I'm pretty sure my beautiful little black Frizzle is a roo too, even though I keep telling "Fiona" what a pretty little girl she is [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Is that an Australorp frizzle? I had one and he was a real late bloomer. I had him for months, even got him a companion roo, before he showed any male characteristics.

    it's a cochin frizzle, it has feathered legs...
    I would wait a couple more weeks.....I had one that had fast comb growth and it stopped, the only difference between her and the boys(for a while) were theirs were red [​IMG]

    Yup "she" is a Bantam Cochin Frizzle! An absolute doll too. Very sweet, curious, outgoing. Holds her own in a group of standards --I am crossing my fingers that it is the same case as yours -- just growing a comb fast but still a pullet!! [​IMG]
