    How old is it? It's comb is quite big and red so I'd say it's a rooster.

    I have the same situation with a 4 1/2 week old BO. Comb on mine is very prevalent and very red wattles. Also mine is very golden in color and doesn't have the "poof" that the girls do. I hope this helps you. ..I'd say yours is a roo also

    Does a pink comb around that age always mean rooster?

    Not always, but when they turn RED like his is, it means roo.
