    I have 3 blrw and i was wondering how can you tell the gender They are about 2 months old. 1 has a bright red comb and the others are pale pink. Wyandottes are hard because of the rose comb. thanks

    At that age if the comb is already getting red it's a roo.

    so males have red combs and females are pale? I am doing the same thing and lost too but mine are about 4-5 months with no crowing

    By 4-5 months it's always very obvious who's a roo and who's not on mine. The roos have a much redder, larger comb by that age and the pullets may be starting to get a little redder, but they'll be much smaller.
