    All 3 were sexed as pullets but you know that isn't always correct.

    But the third one is getting red by it's comb. Doesn't that mean it's a boy?

    They look like pullets. Their combs are not that big for 7-8 weeks old and their combs are not very pink/red.
    Beautiful birds!

    I thought about that although he comb is still pretty small. By that age, the comb with be much bigger and more red in color.

    I think they're all pullets. With my BO male his comb was much bigger and much redder at a younger age than yours. The comb area on your chick is still pinkish in color for the most part. When your girls reach point of lay their faces will begin to turn red, but you're still a few weeks out from that
