    ok, so i get to be that guy now. my kids are three weeks old today, and i've been seeing some comb difference for the last few days. it's gotten to be enough that i thought i'd take a few pictures and ask for opinions. obviously, they are very young and i'm stuck in that hopefully phase!

    i have 2-3 in each breed, and i can see a difference in comb size and color. do you think it's too early for that to be a determiner? here are the pictures:
