    The combs won't be as much an early clue as the feathering. The boys will not look as pretty, their coloring will be more mixed in vs the girls have more definite columbian coloring. I thought I had two pullets last year (sexed) but one didn't look as nice, I called her Bufferella...well she turned into Buffzilla the big cockeral eventually.

    Im hopin I have at least one Buffzillas lol. If not Im sure one of my BOs or "Easter Eggers" (they were labeled as EEs but they may be something different) will be a roo. Cant wait to see your pics so I can compare mine and get an idea of how mine will look in a couple weeks.

    Ooo Im so jealous. We have 4 Buff Brahamas, 2 Barred Rocks (pretty sure both hens), 2 "Easter Eggers" (they were labeled as EEs but Im not sure thats what they really are so I gotta wait for eggs to know for sure), 2 Golden Comets (both hens), and 3 BOs. Mine are all 2 weeks old. I wish DH would let me get more. I keep tryin to talk him into it but hes pretty firm that we have enough for now lol. We still gotta build our coop tho. Hopefully I can get him to build it a little big so we have room to add more once these are out of the brooder [​IMG]
