    Here's my frizzles that are now about 9 wks old.

    Blackie has proved himself a boy as he's been crowing since he was 7 weeks old. (isn't that awfully young?)

    I'm wondering about the rest--they seem to have larger combs, but no crowing and the combs aren't as red as Blackie's yet.

    The look like cockerels to me. I hatched some Aug 6 and my black ones started crowing early, grew larger and redder combs than the red cockerels...If they were pullets, you'd definately know by the tiny combs.

    I was sorta thinking they were boys. Phooey!
    I have 1 little frizzle girl and 1 that didn't frizzle that do have tiny combs. So I guess I'll need to re-home a couple of these guys!

    Thanks!

    Same thing happened to me. I order 8 frizzles from Ideal. Only 2 girls in the bunch....one frizzled and one didn't. I rehomed 6 boys!!!!

    I know your pain!!! [​IMG]

    They are cockerels.
