Is there a way to sex black frizzle bantam chicks. I ordered 5 of them and have 4 left. I only want 1 and would like a female. They are about 2 weeks old. Reading older threads it appears that it has something to do with the comb. I am not sure if it is the size or color or both. (I am new to the chicken/bantam world, so forgive me if I am not using the correct terminology). Could someone give me some feedback on how old they should be when sexing and what to look for? Thank you!

I would say the comb would be your best bet... You wouldn't be able to notice hackle/saddle feathers on males like a regular chicken. What type of frizzle bantam do you have? Cochin?
