    I have 5 GLW's who are 8 weeks old and 5 SLW's that are 6 weeks old?

    Some have very (bright rosy almost red) combs and wattles some are more tannish(is that a word?). Does one mean something over the other or should I just wait and see who crows and who don't???

    I can supply pics if you like. TIA

    I could tell by the time they were 5 weeks. Those with the bright rosy red combs are more than likely roos..the tan combs are pullets.
