    A picture could confirm it, but it certainly sounds like a California White, which is produced by crossing a California Gray rooster with a White Leghorn hen.

    I hate to be negative but that's a whole lot of comb for such a young bird. Gut says cockerel.

    True. Maybe that breed is just heavily combed.

    If the one with the black spot is a boy then that means I have all boys because they all look the same except the one with the big pink comb that I showed you a picture of :(

    The boy will have a noticeably more reddish pink comb whereas the others will have a more pale pink color.
