    They look pretty girly....not much comb/wattle development for 8 weeks.

    I'd say pretty much pullet looking for 2mo olds. males should difinately be showing a larger comb and some sex feathers by this time.

    Girls, all of my BA boys have shown development pretty early. Less than a month old and we knew.

    I'm going to say pullets. I did have a few that were late bloomers. My hens have just now really started getting their combs and wattles and they are 6 months old.

    I'm thinking girl, too. [​IMG] Congratulations – and good picking! Do you have any tips for the rest of us? [​IMG] I've never actually chosen chicks from a store, but I don't think I would be able to tell gender at all, unless you could sex them by color!
