    I have some spangled orloff chicks that are about 8 weeks old. Usually i can at least *kind* of sex chicks by this age but the only difference in can see in these chicks is their size. Are the roosters of this breed quite a bit bigger than the hens? Or are some of my chicks just bigger than others lol?

    Is there any way i can tell the roos from the pullets at this age? Their combs are all about the same size and im not finding any feathers by their tails yet. The larger ones are *mostly* darker but not all of them are darker.
