Heyo, my two chicks are 4 weeks old today. One seems to have its wattles starting to sprout, while the other only has slight bumps where the wattles will grow out. Is this an indication of one male and one female? Thanks

In some breeds females can get small wattlesyounger, so time will tell. Generally you watch for pink, than red combs by 5-7 weeks which usually indicates males in most breeds. Update in a couple of weeks.
