    well 18 weeks is 4-5 months and if they have no waddles and don't attempt to crow i would assume girls. if you could get pics it would help, are their tail feathers pointed?

    one has a slightly curved tail. My friend who hatched both batches I got the chicks from had crowers in that batch a while back, but they could be just slow developers. I will post pics soon.

    As seen in the pics, they look pointy because of the colouring, but they're not.
