    can you start to tell the difference in gender, by comb coloration? i have a mix of reds and some are getting pinker combs and they are all the same age (15 days). and the others seem to keep the same yellowish color for now.

    Combs and wattles getting bigger and redder can help to determine (with uncertainty) if a chick is male.
