    these SHOULD be pullets but one of them is a little more brave than the rest of the flock. The top 4 belong to the brave one, the bottom to belong to the other one. Are they both pullets???

    They're pullets.
    Being brave has nothing to do with gender.

    I think they are pullets in the pics that aren't too blurry. Pullets can be very brave. But WHY do you have 6 week olds under a heat lamp???????? No need for heat, really!

    Thank you! To clarify, by “brave” I mean, she typically pecks me when I am changing their food or water. I thought by their color patterns that they were pullets, by the confirmation helps.

    She may just be hungry or is curious. Or wants attention~

    Yep. Males have more white in their barring so they look lighter color.
