sexing rose combs, yikes

  1. I did great sexing my single comb RIRs. Using comb thickness, leg thickness, and feathering pattern, I had 100% accuracy. Go me! [​IMG]

    Now I have to sex rose comb RIRs. Does anyone have a pic of any rose comb boy chick, maybe 3-4 weeks old, so I can see how the comb develops? How small will the combs stay and for how long? These are really vexing to me! I guess I can still go by legs and, to a degree, feathering, but I really rely on the combs to get the job done. Now I don't have them!! Help!
  2. Does anyone have a picture of a rose comb chick 3-4 weeks old, any breed?
