    We will be 5 weeks old on Monday. We came from MyPetChicken.com and we are supposed to be hens but we know they can't be 100% sure. None of our sisters have this much pinkish in their combs yet and the pink doesn't show up as well in these photos as it does in real life. Anyone have any ideas? Thank You!
    I am either Dumb or Dumber... (my humans can't tell us apart) and Im a Barred Rock.

    Both look like pullets to me, and I LOVE the coloration of Gizmo!

    The barred rock seems a little light colored, but no other roo signs. The ee is a pullet.

    [​IMG] Thank you. First time chick momma and don't have anything to compare them to other than the other girls in the coop. The combs on these two seemed much pinker than the others and I was getting concered.

    Gizmo is 100% girl. EEs can be sexed by color. [​IMG]

    All girls. My RIR turned dark red at 5 weeks and I strongly think it's a hen that matured early. Actually, all my chicks matured early. It must be the probiotics and vitamins I put in their water. :p
