Two GLW need sexing, any ideas? *PICS*

I have a feeling that these two knuckle heads are pullets, but I thought I would ask. They are 8 weeks old.

I  am NOT familiar with the breed, do they usually have  large combs and  wattles at this early age? The second is redder than the first

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Wyandotte pullets get a little pink in the comb and wattles pretty early. They also have a tendency to look pinker if they are flushed from stress of being held. I don't see anything in these photos that screams cockerel yet. If you can post a couple photos of them standing on their own showing a profile view and the feathers on their backs, I can probably give you a better answer.

I would! But they are TERRIFIED of the camera. They will not stand still for me to take a photo, they just flip out. They are fine being cuddled and stuff, just the camera. lol

They sound like my birds, super friendly, but when the camera comes out, they're gone.

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.
