    These girls are just over 6 weeks old. Nicely feathered and nice sweet birds. I wanted to confirm that they are indeed girls. Both are identical as far as comb and wattle development. The combs are pink, the wattles have a touch of pink. I didn't expect them to change colors so young.

    Thanks for your help.

    At 6 weeks old I would say pullets. Cockerels are usually lighter in color as well.
