    I have recently gotten 4 FBCM and I know for sure there are two cockerels ( will be getting rid of those ) and these other two I am unsure of. Could someone chime in and let me know what you think?? The pictures that I post will be of two different babies.

    The only way I have had any success in sexing is once the chick is totally feathered if it starts getting a red comb it is a boy, and I see no red...I also see that they aren't feathered fully yet, so it's a toss up for me still I guess. I just look for red on the face...

    The top chick looks like a Cockerel, bottom a pullet.

    But, they are young, and I still could be wrong. That's just my guess.

    The top one is a pullet and the bottom one is a cockerel. I know because of the shape of the combs and have seen the results[​IMG].

    I'm going to say both are little girls. But definitely the bottom one is a pullet. They're carrying their back pretty flat and those tail feathers coming in fast seem girlyish.
