    Hi Everyone,
    Is there a way you can tell a female or male from the Combs?
    These are Black Australorp chick that are 24 days old today and I have noticed a difference between them both.

    One has a darker looking comb.

    The other is extremely pink.

    Note: No need to worry I won't be getting rid of any roos until I see all behaviors or aggression. Im just curious that's all.

    Your second one is a early cockerel. Wait a couple weeks on the other one.

    Another way you can tell is to look at the waddles. If they are red at this age, then it is a roos. If not, it's a wait and see. Also, I've noticed in my chicks the males tend to stand tall, and two males about two months old will begin to face off with eachother at times.

    Ohhh yesss. So the one with the pink comb is taller and skinner then the other. And now you mention it im sure I have 1 Rhode Island Red roo out of my 3. Its taller with a pink comb and has white cheecks and top of its wings.
