    I have 7 pekin/silkie mix and some already have larger comes than others, is it possible that the ones with larger combs are roo's? or is it too early to tell regardless of the large combs?

    I'd say it's entirely possible. I was positive on all my cochin/pekin roosters except 1 by 3 weeks.

    I had suspicions about my Production Red boy, but wasn't sure sure until 8 weeks. I'm sure it's possible.

    I could tell on a two week old Wyandotte when compared to two of his siblings. My EEs were another story altogether...

    Quote:Yes, I have 3 BLRWs, and the rooster made himself apparent at around the same time as the cochin boys. I also have an EE that I'm leaning towards being a rooster, but I'm just not sure. I need to get pics of that EE to see what others think.
