Can you tell boys from girls by comb in Ameraucana's?

    I have 2 Ameraucana's that have hatched and they both have different looking combs, do boys have different combs than girls??

    I think the boys have a wider comb, or three rows instead of one, something like that. And I think they turn pink pretty early. You got picks?

    At hatch, you can barely see the comb at all, but both boys and girls have a pea comb. The boys usually have a wider, more raised comb than the ladies.
