    Here are my almost 5 week old banty's (we only got two). I don't know if it's still too early to tell what they are. Also, the comb on one is a lot pinker than the comb on the other. They're the same size though. Does that mean anything?

    Based on their coloration, I'd say they're pullets. Give it another couple weeks to be sure.

    Too early to tell... they are small but look a little like my Partridge Rocks so who knows.

    We want hens, but I'll take anything. They're just so darn sweet! I love them!
