    They are both the same age, got them at a feed store here in tucson. One is growing much faster than the other and has giant feet. What should i look for or are you guys/gals certain they are females? Remember they are 5 weeks old, can one accurately guarantee that they are females?

    No.

    The only accurate test is the test of time. They either crow or lay eggs at some point. Then you'll know for sure.
