    Then it's a boy. My 12 week old girls have only a tiny comb that's only slightly pink, and no wattles.

    That's what I was thinking, I tried my hand at vent sexing when I brought it home. Looks like I'll be finding a home for him. Too bad, he is a sweet bird but can't keep a Roo

    I know how you feel - the first time we hatched some of these gorgeous bantams we ended up with 2 girls and 6 boys. Even worse, the 4 frizzles were all boys! At least the breeder I got the eggs from takes boys back and rehomes them, but it was still tough for the kids to have to give them back.
