Is it possible to tell if these are pullets yet?

My six darlings are almost five weeks old and as with many newbies on here it seems, I too am excited to know if I have pullets (my other three are a little camera shy this evening). I believe that I have two silkies (five toes) and they are all supposed to be Easter Eggers. If it's too early to tell please let me know when I should repost future pics. Thanks for the help!

If you can't see any wattles sprouting yet then I'd say you're in with a good chance. But at least 6 weeks old is a good age to be sure one way or another. I know crested breeds can be tricky and take a bit longer to know for sure. They sure are cute with their top knots though!

I am not sure you can tell on an Easter Egger by look until they are older.

The second picture looks like a pullet, but the first picture seems more like a cockerel to me. Although until the wattles grow in, you can't really be too sure.
