    Full body pics are always best, but from what I can see here you have silver laced Wyandottes. I'm not convinced on the pullet part, though, they look to have a lot of comb for the age. Full body profile shots including legs would help sex them and confirm breed.

    If they are only six weeks old, I definitely think they are cockerels.

    They are Silver-Laced Wyandottes, and both look like cockerels. You won't usually see so much red comb on a bird that young.The combs also seem rather broad, which is another indicator that they could be males (Wyandotte males often have broader combs that females).

    Thanks again! They were sold as all pullers, but I have heard that the sexing isn't always accurate. Means I'll need to get some hens!

    or return them if they were sold as pullets. The seller should make it right. No need to keep roosters you just got by accident.
