    Pullet AND Cockerel
    The brown is the pullet and the black/white is the cockerel

    Thats what i am hoping. But they have been showing some aggressive behavior toward one another. Seem to face off at each other, jumping at one another, the brown one got poked near the eye. Is this normal for seramas, do you know? We are new to seramas!

    Quote:Seramas are VERY scrappy birds! we introduced 5 cockerels into my MIL's 14 Red Sex-Links before the boys were sold, an they held their own even thought they were considerably smaller then the girls!!!

    Here are some pics of my babies I had.. You can tell whos boy an whos girl! (btw ignore the chicken wire)

    your girls do not seem to have any combs, but my brown chick seems to be developing a comb, its not pink like the other one though. Are there any other signs to tell the difference?

    They seem to be constantly pecking at one another. Trying to figure out if they need to be separated, but when we separate them, the black and white one chirps up a storm until we put them back together.

    Now that you have the better headshots it does look like you have two boys.. [​IMG]
    But that probably isnt the only reason picking on eachother.

    Those do appear to be two Roos. By the way I have found they are a kick to watch [​IMG] and are usually more bark [​IMG] than bite. I have only had one that hurt another and it only happened once, and was not that serious. They were together a long time after that.

    Enjoy your birds. Serama's are a hoot!
