    Is it possible to sex 4 week old chicks by the size, shape and color of the comb?

    What do you think of these 4 week old combs?

    Yes, comb size and color can be an early indicator of gender. The combs of your birds look pullet-y to me.

    4th and 5th ones down look like they might be roosters just because their combs are a little bigger, but the rest all look like hens to me. [​IMG]
