    How old are they? I think they are a bit young to be certain of gender, but the chick on the righthand side of photos 5,6,7,8 looks possibly like a male to me.

    Just realised the photos are all of only two chicks, right? One is definitely female, one possibly male. Wait another couple of weeks to see if the comb gets bigger and redder and wattles grow.

    They are right around 6 weeks, that one is a bit larger and a tad more aggressive/bossy. Bigger comb and more developed looking

    I do know that the females combs dont turn red till they are ready to lay, so hopefully...they told me 95%female so what do you do if its male?
