    How old are they and what breed are they? I am seeing pretty much all boys except the brownish one maybe.

    I agree, it's early days yet but that's a lot of combs. Post again around 6 weeks, should be evident by then.

    Its too young to tell for sure. But, I agree, thats a lot of red comb for two week old chicks.

    Don't panic yet! They change alot in a few weeks and I've been sure that I had roos just to find out that the females of that breed have larger combs! Good luck
