    These little ones are about 6 weeks old now .... I am new to chickens so I know my guess but am hoping some of you veterans can weigh in!
    I tried to get as many good helpful shots as possible but let me know if you need any other angles to help ID them!

    Thanks!!!

    Here Is Popcorn Frizzle Bantam:

    Still girly to me. If you see waddles at 8-9 weeks, then worry.
     
  3. At 6 weeks, they look like pullets to me.

    Both look like pullets to me,too.
    They're both very adorable. ^^
    I love their names. XD

    Thank you all!

    I of course am hoping for pullets and I was thinking that Nugget is a girl but I thought Popcorn might just be a boy.... Popcorn's comb seemed all of a sudden to have a growth spurt whereas Nugget's didn't .... but now Popcorn seems to have grown back into it's comb size [​IMG] so it doesn't seem so large in comparison anymore.

    Crossing fingers.... I guess all I can do is wait.

    They both look to be pullets to me. I have 8 birds that are 5 weeks and younger and they are very noticable as far as which are pullets and which are cockerels. Think you have both pullets here.
