    Just picked these up today and the lady swore they were pullets. They are 5 weeks old tomorrow.

    What do you think? Thanks!!!

    Hrm. That makes me think the 4 week old blue marans chick I have might actually be a girl - I was really worried mine was a boy, but the comb on mine is much smaller... But that might be bad news for you...

    yours are boys, hens dont have that amount of comb or reddness by that age and they dont get the red in the neck that quick either

    So frustrating...the breeder will not answer or return text. Even though she said she would exchange if cockerels. Now im out the money i paid for the 2 chickens and the full tank of gas going there and back. :(
