Definitely still early. 5 weeks is the preferred age to want to guess with more accuracy but the older the better.

Combs aren’t always a sure sign of them being a cockerel. I’ve seen both male and female develop their combs at the same time, it’s usually later on that the male’s comb begins to turn pink & red.

Developing waddles at an early age can sometimes mean cockerel but some breeds develop them early and end up being girls.

So there’s still a chance they’re female 😊 Come back in 2-3 weeks and someone on here will be able to give a more educational guess.
