    These Reds are 4 months old. Any idea about a sex? The one seems to be growing a bigger comb. Thanks

    They look like hens to me but I am not an expert and want to see what others think.

    I vote hens! If any comparison they look just like my NH Reds at this age. The rooster was distinguishable by this point.

    definately hens at that age, if they were Roo's they'd be starting to crow and have much darker and almost fully developed combs
