    But I do want the truth

    5 week old + OEG bantam (we think)

    Other chick we have same age and we think same breed has much redder comb, but
    the other chick is a totally different color, so I didn't know if we could compare combs.

    I had some cochin bantams that I thought 4/5 were roos, but around 6 wks the 3 roos combs got much redder and bigger than the one pullet that had a fairly large pink comb, it didn't grow more or get redder and the feathering is different. I would give it a little more time. The one that 1 am sure is a pullet still has a very small and pale comb.
