Hi kmh84 and welcome to BYP

Cute chicks.
Are you asking about breed or sex? Did you breed or hatch them or did you get them as chicks?

Sex please! I know that they are meant to be lavender pekins. Just trying to work out how many boys that we have.

Hi
What cutties!
The look like girls to me... normally at 3-4 weeks the male comb is already turning pink in colour...

Mine were less obvious at 2-3 weeks, although the male did have a slightly larger comb. By 4 weeks it was plainly obvious who the male was...

I'd say yours are girls too, you'll know for sure in a week or so.
