    Looking for some input as to whether these two are pullets or cockerels. They are 9 weeks old. They're so skittish, I could only photograph them on the roost - so no great side shots. I haven't had either breed before, and I've looked for photos but can't find any that show me what they should look like at this age. I'm pretty sure the GLW is a cockerel - not so sure about the BR.

    Here's the barred rock:

    And here's the gold-laced wyandotte:

    The BR is a pullet, the GLW..... at 9 weeks with a comb that red I'd say cockerel. Otherwise just from the limited views you provided, it looks like a pullet.

    Here's a shot of my GLW "Skittle" at 9 weeks with my two SLWs who were 6.5 weeks at the time. She is a single comb but notice how pale her comb is. She is 17.5 weeks now and her comb has finally started to get bright red in the last week.

    Here is the most recent picture of the same hen/pullet taken this past sunday: I'd say your GLW is a ROO...
