    Ok, I can't post pics, but I'm wondering: I have a Silver Sebright that's about 6 weeks old. It has a red comb. Does that mean it's a roo? My other Silver Sebright roo looks the same only he's bigger.

    [​IMG] I could have sworn it was a hen!!!

    It's hard to say without a picture. If it were me, I would ask people to post pics of silver sebrights at that age where they already know if it is a hen or roo and then you can compare.

    If it is 6 weeks old and has a really red comb then I would say most likely a Roo but dont be too quick to determine. They can really fool ya. Pics would be great though.
