    I'm going to go with female. Combs are pretty small for almost 6 weeks. I love speckled sussex, by the way. Great personalities.

    I think A is a girl and B is a boy
    But that is just a guess.

    Too early to tell for me but if I were to guess, I'd have to say boy on A and girl on B. And now you have every possibility covered [​IMG]

    I do think it's a little to early to be sure, both of mine where evident at about 10 or 12 weeks, but right now I'm guessing 2 girls, I'll attach a photo of one of mine @ 7 weeks for comparison.

    Schwartz, Mine are pale, not pink like Gidget, and she's a girl-at 7 weeks here? I think I've seen more pics of Gidget in the last few days than any other chicken!!! LOL. But yes, my A's feathers look just like that. I really should take pics at every week so I can drive people crazy in the future, LOL

    Debid, are you sure you can't make this any harder??? [​IMG]

    Quote:Sorry! It's probably just the angle but A looks very tall/upright in the photo while the pullets tend to be more squat/horizontal. They do both have small combs so unless there is a big comb growth spurt in the next week or two, then you could very well have two girls.
