Can you get a pic without the heat lamp?
I'm thinking female for the one on the right, can't see the left good enough to guess.

Here are some updated photos. One definitively has a poofier (sp? ) tail, both have black wash down the front, and both had white spots on their heads as noted in the photos above. Most of these feathers have fallen out now. Any new thoughts? If this post needs to be moved, I've noticed I put it in the wrong spot, please feel free to do so. Thanks for your help guys!
Bump, here is another one. Everyone please feel free to guess. I'd love to hear your thoughts/reasons why.
They are 3 weeks, 1 day today...
They look like barred rock hens to me... only reason I say hen is bc they are a bit darker black and white barring... I had a hen and a rooster from day old from ideal poultry. .. it takes them a min to come into there color... but beautiful once they do
There were supposedly barred rocks from Townline Hatchery but...there's been some speculation as to whether or not they are cockerals or pullets. I like your guess best. Seems like it's still a crap shoot at this point though.
Nope, not a crap shoot. Barred Rocks are easily sexed by color, and your two are female. Males would be much lighter in color. Here's a good photo example. Cockerel on the left, two pullets on the right. (I'm borrowing the photo from Susan Garten).
awesome pic... perfect example
