    We have these two Sebrights and we're thinking 1 hen and 1 roosters. They are 5 weeks old. Any thoughts? The first is the one we think is a hen. 2nd is the rooster.

    They are the same age? If that's so, given that the combs are so different, would that give more weight to thinking the second one is a rooster?

    Reading your post, because we too, have a Sebright we are trying to sex. But we only have one. Ours is 6 weeks old, and attacking all the others, here's his pic. A lot like yours....

    Yours is definitely a rooster. I also have a Silver Sebright, the same age as my Goldens, and his comb is twice the size of my rooster-looking Golden. They are all the same age at 5 weeks old. One has a large comb, one medium sized comb, and one small.

    Put up new photos at 8 weeks of age- one may catch up to the other. 5 weeks is too young

    My sebright is 8 weeks old and it's so frustrating not knowing what it is lol I also have a silkie the same age. One of them is making potential crowing sounds but I haven't been able to catch which one is doing it :(
