    My chicks are almost 7 weeks old and I noticed they have a little pink at the base of their comb. [​IMG]

    Does this mean they are roosters??

    Thank you in advance.

    Quote:Agree. Just because it looks pink does not mean roo. A combination of characteristics can help you to tell the sex of your chicks. A lot of the time it is nearly impossible to tell the sex at that age. All pure breeds and crosses are different.
