    I have 2 day old chicks-2 of them-I noticed this am that they both have very visible combs-kinda smooshed to the side-I'm assuming from being squished in the egg while developinganyo-is it possible that you can tell a roo so quickly? I dont have pictures-camera got left at work! They are RIR's.. I thought no the 2 chicks I have are roo's !!! AM I just being a total newbie and they all have little combs?

    A 2 day old chick comb is not an indicator of gender.
