    I have had chicks about 7 different times in the last year. I'm still learning but it does seem that when a chick has a comb at all before a month old they are roosters. These combs are the same color as their beak at first but still very much there. A bunch of mine were born with combs that were bent to the side but now are noticeable at a week old. Anyone have experience with this? My chickens are bantam. I'm hoping they aren't all roosters again!

    This is one week old. The comb was there at hatch but folded over a bit. Last hatch any like this were roosters. I have 6 like this red and all have these combs. I also have others without it. I'm thinking they are all roosters from my experience but wondering if anyone has had a hen do this too?
