    Females feather out faster than males and on a male the comb will grow faster and pink up while a female may get the comb but they dont pink up until much older. I would have to say you will know for sure by time they are 5 to 6 weeks old.

    Do all females feather out faster or just this breed?

    Usually females feather out faster in general. It's a little young to tell the sex of this one, but it does definitally look like a pullet so far!
