    Depending on the age, they're sexed just like any other breed.

    Post pics, profile shots including legs and comb, in decent lighting. Include age of bird. younger than 6ish weeks, it's probably best to wait.

    Comb shots are good, also.

    [​IMG] Almost four weeks. The only two I have. However, some Ive seen that I would say Roo, were pullets. I'm guessing pullets, but of course, especially with these, how can I be so sure.

    Yeah, they're still pretty young.

    I'm leaning toward cockerel on the first, not sure on the second. Can you get profile pics?
