    These two 13 week old bantams are pullets, right?? I have one that I know is a cockerel, and two that I'm sure are pullets, but these other two- also from the same hatch- I'm just not positive. They are about 13-14 weeks old. First two pics are the chicks in question.

    My vote:

    pullet
    roo

    But I'm not the expert. I'm looking specifically at the red across wings and back and those huge legs! If it is a "he", he has some more gender-specific feathering that will be coming in soon.

    Looking forward to more knowledgeable responses.

    I think they're both male. The second, colorful one leaves no doubt, and the white one.......well, that's way more color than I've seen on a 13week old pullet, even a leghorn.

    What a difference a month makes! Yep both are roosters! The white one is actually quite the little roo now, the colored one is a bit passive, but definitely a rooster. Boy, they had me fooled for a while...
