    I have a showgirl that's about 9 weeks. It has a relatively big comb. Not a walnut comb, a traditional one (don't remember their name). I know they are generally hard to sex, but is it a safe bet that this is a rooster? If it was just a turken, I'd be pretty sure it was a roo.

    Yes, a single comb. I'll add some pics. The one of his/her comb didn't come out great, but it sticks up pretty good.

    Here, I tried to get a side shot of it. With all those fluffy feathers, it's hard to see. :)

    Yes, just the black one. I have no clue what the white one as it's not showing signs (to my inexperienced eyes) either way. I think it has a walnut comb as I don't feel any comb on it's head yet.

    Ok, the comb was throwing me off. I'm not used to trying to figure out black combs and it's the only one out of four that has any comb at all.

    He's a rooster. He's crowing.
