    All of my barred rocks had combs when I brought them home as well--they turned out to be pullets, so I wouldn't worry. Cute pics!

    The darker coloring on the BR indicates that it's a girl.

    If the sex-link were male it would be barred in color, not solid black -feather color that is- the color of the baby down would be like a Barred Rock, black with a white spot on the top of it's head.

    Cute babies! They do grow so fast don't they? Just wait, by 6 weeks of age they'll be fully feathered and look just like mini chickens- So cute!
