    This is doodle, a splash barnevelder which who I got at only 2-4 days old on Oct 11tj, so he/she is about 3-4 weeks old. There is the beginning of a comb that is really pale in color.

    This is Artemis. He's a black maran, and his comb is already pretty red in color although it isn't very big yet. I'm guessing he's 5-6 weeks, but I'm unsure. He's about 8 inches long, and has a nice big tail. I'm unsure if he's a boy though.

    This is archer. I'm guessing her at 4-5 weeks, and she's only a little bigger than doodle. She's also a barnevelder, and her comb is totally pale.

    Here is Artemis with his smaller sister, Dutchess. In unsure of her age and if she's a girl but she has only a small small small nub of a comb.

    Thanks for anyone who replies on gender and or age!

    Well, they are to young to say for sure but no one is really screaming cockerel yet. I would keep an eye on Doodle and Artemis.
