It's not the color shade of the chick but the color of it's size & redness of it's comb & wattle.

They all look like pullets for now. They also look like their feather development is seriously behind for 5 weeks old. Most 5 week old chicks should be almost fully feathered. You are likely keeping them far too warm.

That should had read 3-4 weeks not 5 :-) sorry for the typo. I got myself all confused. Been a long day.

They are about 6in tall and the adult feathers (really funny feeling looking things) are coming in on an around neck down the side an back. Twice size of my two chochin chicks that are a week or so behind these. I'm new to all of this.
