    IMG_0564.JPG IMG_0566.JPG need help sexing the first. These two are both the same breed and age, 8 week old old English bantams. The store said they should all be hens but sometimes roosters get mixed in or missed. The first one's comb is so much bigger and red though. "She" acts more like a rooster too. More aggressive to the others and running the yard (even though she's the smallest lol). Any help would be appreciated!!

    The first is a cockerel. Also, bantams don't usually come sexed.

    That's what I thought but the girl at the pet store said they're all sexed. It's okay though, I kinda wanted a rooster :)
