    I hatched out 23 of my own mutt chickens on Easter(5 weeks ago) and I'm trying to figure out which ones are roosters. If the comb is turning pink and waddles are red does that mean it's a rooster

    Yes, usually the ones that grow bigger redder combs and wattles first are the boys. If you want you could post pics, and we could help you out.
