    Ok! I'm ridiculously new (to chickens and forums)!!
    Soooo, soooo, new!

    We have a fluffy buffy too, that looks to be about the same age (10 ish weeks) but only one and we are trying to figure out sex as well!

    I see the bright red in the photo, on the little jowl flaps/wattles? and comb, is that the most determining factor at this age?

    I hope this photo loads properly!

    @TheErinBraun if yours is 10 weeks, that is definitely a pullet! Yes, at 10 weeks the comb and wattle are the biggest factors. The saddle and hackle feather don't really come in until at least 12 weeks.
