for 2 months old those are both roos (reds)
You've got two little roosters...
I agree - roosters.
All the reds are roosters.
How did all these people know they were males? (cockerels)
Common production breeds, in a single comb pretty much have this in common. The pullets (young females) don't get their red combs and wattles until more like 15 weeks, before they come into lay. Their combs remain more tan or yellow. The males, the young cockerels, develop their red combs and wattles pretty early on. Often, at the 4 or 5 week mark. This gives them away.
Thank you for all the info! Love this site and appreciate everyones comments!
Seems to me that they are pullets. Might need to wait a little longer, some breeds are harder to tell when they are younger. Like maybe wait for some hackle feathers to come in, if, they are roosters
I sure hope they are!!! But what makes you say pullet? Just curious...im completely new to chickens! And if you can tell me what to look for as they grow to determine girl or boy please let me know.
