    First time chicken owner. Got 6 chicks in April from TSC. They were sold as Dixie Rainbows. 4 are lighter with barred pattern with bigger/more red combs, 2 are a light brown with small light pinkish combs.
    I'm assuming the ones with red combs are roosters but I'm unsure?

    You may be new, but you're a fast learner! You're correct on your genders.
