    I've noticed that my other breeds of chicks (SS, BO, BR) have started showing little combs at 4 weeks, however, my light brahmas area above their beaks are smooth and show nothing.....
    Can you tell if this is female? 4 weeks old

    I always had to wait until they were almost 12 weeks old to be able to tell... looking for saddle feathers.
