    hi there,

    My 2 BO are now 10 weeks old and their combs and wattles have not redened or grown at all. Is it safe to start thinking of them as female yet? Or am I still too early to be sure? They have been the trickiest breed I've had to sex, even the Silkies were easier to work out!

    Thanks guys.

    Thank you so much. I'm thrilled, I was convinced they were boys in the early days as they both seemed to feather so slowly, but then as they got older their combs and wattles were so small I began to hope they could be pullets. That's awesome.
