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.
