    And these are my two wellie chicks. I did the whole eyeliner, clear 'V' on the head thing when I selected them as chicks so hopefully they are girls. They look pretty identical. They're chests are gettinig a salmon clour, but not sure about the feathers coming through on the necks with some black...

    The only way I know to tell is once a bird if fully feathered the males will start getting red on their combs while the girls won't until later. If I see a chick face go red I know it's a boy.

    Those are pullets. Males would have black in the chest feathers by now.
