    We bought 4 chicks that were sexed and so we thought we got 4 pullets. Now Bella is starting to turn pink and we are thinking maybe roo? She is three weeks old and the only one of our eight with a pink face. We don't have another self blue banty to compare her with so we aren't sure.

    With that big of comb at 4 weeks I would say roo.

    If it starts to turn red next week then roo for sure.

    With a comb that prominent and pink at that age, you have a boy.

    Hey the comb ain't a 100% thing, I've had hens with bigger combs than the roos.

    Three weeks with that large pinkish comb, says roo to me but you may have to wait a little longer to be sure. Hope you can keep the chick if a roo. [​IMG]
