    Any tips on sexing Chanteclers? I have a handful of 2 month olds and need to figure out who's who. :)

    The roosters combs should turn pink sooner than the girls.

    My partridge chanteclers were quite easy to tell apart at a young age as the roo's comb was pinker and his bright feathers came through very young. I don't remember the exact age he was but I had several other roosters ( of different breeds) and he was the first I was sure about.
