    Yes, it's so hard to tell some especially at a young age. I see young children in your photos..I hope they're not heart broken if some are roos that you can't keep [​IMG] I wish you all the best with your flock! Keep us updated [​IMG]

    The side view doesn't look as red...maybe just the angle or light?

    Thank you so much! Yes, they'll be devastated, especially with the Easter eggers. They're their favorites. My reds are so friendly and sweet that I'm in denial on the last one with the red comb...

    It's definitely bigger and redder than her sister's... At what point do the girls get red combs? My mom's Rhode Island Red hens have red combs, but are full grown.

    Hens typically get red, redder, combs at point of lay
