Yes, still settling in I expect. Is it possible to sex beardies at 6-7 weeks? I didn't think so but could be wrong of course. If you keep them together you may have to keep an eye on that because if you have 2 males in together they will end up fighting. And you would need to separate off the male from the females soon to prevent them breeding far too early.

They are most likely still settling in, it can take up to a week or more. It is possible for some people to sex them at that age but never acurately tbh it becomes easier to sex with age
