    Hi

    I have a 16 week old easter egger that has a bigger redder comb than my other two. It dominates my sussex roo, but I've heard sussex roos aren't very agressive. Roo or hen? I am sorry I can't post pics. It takes several weeks to get them on the internet.

    Well, at sixteen weeks a hen could be getting a larger, redder comb, showing she's maturing. Other things to look for are thicker legs and color. Look through the ee bragger's thread or this section to see pics of pullets and roos. If you look at enough pics you'll get an "eye" for sexing them by color.
