    I originally thought the gray frizzle might be a boy but now Im thinking both are girls. They were hatched at the same time, Jan 31.[​IMG]

    They both look like pullets to me.

    Thank you for your opinion. Ill let you know when I know for sure. Im thinking that too. Comb development made me initially think the frizzle was a male and now some blotchy coloring in the straight feathered one makes me now wonder about her but her comb development is way behind the gray one. I know different breeds can develop differently and at different rates though so I really cant compare them to one another.

    They both look like pullets, but the frizzle's comb looks a little big for its age.

    I agree about the comb on Rocky the frizzle. His/her feet are smaller than the other one's though so Im still thinking maybe female. Ill be happy with either a boy or girl. Ive been trying to raise a male to be close to me like my first one Chickie, shown in my avitar. Chickie was as loyal to me as any dog. In many ways Rocky reminds me of Chickie though in comparison to pics of Chickie at that age, Rocky's feet and comb are smaller.
