    I am wanting to find the sex of my BTW Japanese. Both chicks have their combs coming in at 3.5 weeks. I thought roos would have redness coming in. The combs are the same color as the beak. I have pics but they are VERY crappy. All of these pictures are of Streamer, the larger of the two. River is smaller. I don't know if it makes a different, but the pokes of the comb are thicker on River than Streamer...

    It looks like you may have a pair. Sometimes when they are really young you can look at the combs and make a pretty good guess. I am sure you will see major differences within the next week or two.

    Where did you get them?
