    Ok my babies are about 10 weeks old now. I am trying to figure out boy from girl is there any good way this young with these darn pea combs to figure this out? I can tell distinctly a few have more copper flecks and some less?

    Just like other breeds, the male combs will be red and fleshy before the girls. I would venture to guess that if you have boys, their combs will flesh out and turn red in the next month or so.
