EE's at 8 weeks. Still think Pullets? Pea Combs?

    Okay here is an update of Peeps (chick #1) and Cadbury (chick #2).

    Peeps shows the typical female EE pattern, so I'm saying pullet all the way. I think she has a pea comb as well.

    I'm not happy that Cadbury is showing a bit of reddish brown on the shoulders (shows up a bit more in daylight)...but it seems to be developing more even patterning again so I'm still hopeful that this is a pullet especially since comb is pretty undeveloped.

    Appreciate your opinions.

    Thanks

    #2 Cadbury (hopefully a pullet too)

    Thank you all for your thoughts.

    I'm ruling pullet too for chick 2 unless some major changes happen. It does have a blotchier color than I would feel 100% certain pullet but the basic body type, behavior and comb indicate pullet at this time. Thanks for confirming that for me. Another set of eyes is always helpful.

    Time will tell.

    Thanks again.
