    DD & I think this one is a boy. It is substantially larger than the others and notice the pinking of the comb. What do you think? I have 3 that are the same size as this one. I got them from Ideal, purchased as pullets. they are 5 weeks old.

    I'm not really an expert, but I think even hens get combs. The fact that it's just now pinking out at 5 weeks might still mean it's a pullet. All my roos (even tho they're a different breed) starting getting their combs and wattles at about 2 weeks.
