    We would love to help you. If you could post a picture, that would help. It is very hard to tell without one.

    For me I could tell on my Buff Orpington roo. His comb was far more developed than his sisters were. His legs were also a different color and thicker.

    My bantam cochins were obvious which were males and which were females by 3 weeks old. The males combs grew pink and taller much more quickly than the females.
