    I have 3 about 11 weeks. one I know is a girl, one I know is a roo (large RED comb and waddles) and the 3rd I am not sure. It has a comb and waddles but are not as large as the one I know is a roo and they are more pink.

    This I know is Roo..

    Looks to me like the second one is a girl, but I'd get a second opinion. I'm still inexperienced.

    really hard to tell cause the flash is So bright on the picture....I would say ROO though...
    A full body side shot, a top shot looking at the tail, and a better shot of comb and neck feathers would also help more.

    Best Wishes,

    I'm strongly leaning toward rooster, but better pics would help.

    Yeah I have been leaning towards a roo myself. they are silkie/WFBS mixes. I just haven't had a red single comb girl from the cross yet. the girls have so far had silkie combs or the last one thats in these 3 has a black single comb. I know hens on the wfbs side have large red combs and waddles, but not sure how early they get them. I will try and get better pictures tomorrow.
