    Can anyone tell if these are cockerels or pullets?

    Also, what color are they?

    A is a White Crested Blue, possibly a pullet.

    B is a White Crested Black, possibly a cockerel.

    I only have 1 polish and he is only 6 weeks old so far from an expert but mine does have huge red waddles already.
