    Hello. My bantams are 1 month old and a few of them are really developing their combs. Is this a sign that they are roosters? I need to get rid of the roosters so the sooner I know the better.

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    That could be a sign. Roosters do tend to develop combs sooner than hens. I wouldn't get rid of any until you are absolutly for sure though.

    I have some 2 month old Bantams. One has a larger comb than the others. This morning it started trying to crow! It also started acting like it was in charge of things, so I am pretty sure this Bantam is a rooster.
