    Welcome To BYC! My say is that Sage is a Pullet and Lucy is a Cockerel.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I’ll propose that your thread be moved to the forum where you will get the best advice. For sure the second bird is showing more comb compared to the first one and suggests cock bird.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

    Those both look like pullets to me. By 10 weeks, roos are usually starting to show their true selves.

    Enjoy your babies!

    Welcome to our group!! :)

    If they are both the same age, I would agree with Barnhart...1st one a pullet...2nd one a Cockerel. :).

    At 10 weeks, I would expect that a cockerel would have much larger and redder comb and wattles... I believe you have two pullets.

    I would guess pullets.
