    We have 6 "pullets" yet I've been curious about these two. I know that leghorns develop a comb quite early, so I've taken that into consideration, but would love some input of the sex of these two 6 week old birds.

    Below is the Welsummer at 6 weeks... Mind you the color of the comb is more yellow, just the sunlight makes it look pink

    This is the Exchequer at 6 weeks

    These two have the largest combs of all 6 chicks. I know they tend to have larger combs as a breed, but just curious what you all think. I'll update with pictures in the future as we find out for sure.

    I'm thinking pullet on both of them.

    I'm leaning towards pullet on both of them, though that guess will change if their combs get much redder/larger in the next 1-3 weeks.
