    I bought two Black Minorca pullets three weeks ago. I don't know if its just me or not but I seem to be having bad luck this week. One of my 9 week old pullets turned out to be a roo. And with my two little babies the one has a MUCH larger comb then the other. Can any one help? [​IMG]
    The one with the big comb is Cake and the other one is Devil.

    A large comb with Minorcas at an early age is not a good indicator of sex. Both males and females develop large combs that flop over on the hens. Keep your eyes out for male feathering.
