A faverolle and EE- what gender?

    alrighty- I have no chickens trying to crow but I can't imagine that I am soo lucky as to get all hens. There are a couple that I'm on the fence about tho. you all were so helpful with my other EE, so please help me out in seeing if these two are pullet or cockrel. They will be 20 weeks Oct 5th, and the faverolle is being kept no matter what sex he/she is. But I'm dying to know! are these both girls? I suspect the faverolle is a boy and the EE is a girl, but I am a complete newbie so I need your expert opinions.

    Thanks for helping

    And here is the ee pecking at a few pieces of catfood I mix in with their crumbles. usually I alternate the goodies I mix in. one day corn, then hemp seed, some oats, flax seed, a handful of catfood or a few nuts . . .

    Girls, but I've never seen a Faverolle hen with a dark beard like that.

    I gotta get more recent pics. These are about 2 months ago, which means they were about 6 months old.
