    Can anyone tell me do these look like girls or boys? Neither one has a pink comb. They are pale so far and small and mostly flat. Thanks so much!

    Thanks Everyone!
    I hope they are girls as I only had 2 eggs out of 8 hatch this time and from my last batch of eggs I only got 1 girl and 3 boys (for the stew pot).
    It would be the perfect number for my little flock if these are both girls.[​IMG]
