A while back I asked if one of my chicks was male or female and was told that all 3 were male! Shock and horror!

So, you guys are so good at this, we have 7 new ones and I'm 99% one is male but need help with the rest. They are about 6 weeks old.

Good question!! I can tell by the comb. A males comb will be a dark red, while a females are orange or a light pink. Also males have very thick legs, females are skinny.

The first(red)one may not be a cockerel. If the red fills in where it is solid color,it could be one of the red production breed pullets.
