    I just looked them up on my hatcheries page! Both sexes have red combs though the roos is bigger! The coloring seems a bit darker in the roos saddle feaathers! Do you have any saddles starting yet?

    Females should NOT have red combs until 4+ months. Males may start developing earlier. If you post your pictures in the "Which breed or gender" forum, you'll get your answer from those that can help. This is not the place for that and pictures are a necessity for anyone to help you.
