    We hatched four of these chicks. They are 5 weeks old and all look alike as far as combs and wattles. Is it too early to tell their sex? Thanks.

    They look like pullets.
     
  3. I'm sure that the first one is a pullet but I'm uncertain about the 2nd chick. Can you post more pictures pls?

    It's too early to say that they are absolutely pullets but the two you've pictured don't have any masculine features yet -- which is a good sign if you're hoping for girls.
