Does a more red comb indicate being a cockerel? I’m more familiar sexing Olive Eggers and Marans with the larger comb size and redness indicating being a cockerel. I have three Red Laced Red Wyandottes that are 4 1/2 weeks old.

#1 (above) - I was really hoping this one would be a female because he has really pretty light colors, but I’m afraid it’s a male.
