    Hmmm, the light one is a lot lighter so it could be a cockerel but looking at the comb and wattles makes me think that it is a pullet. I guess I am not help so hopefully there are lots of other opinions to come.

    It is a lot lighter, but as @JedJackson said, the comb and wattles look like it's a pullet.

    Both pullets. By 4 weeks it's obvious who the boys are. I have noticed that hatchery BR are getting lighter.

    That's so strange! But i guess comb and wattles come before color unless he/she could be a cockerel a bit late in development? But by 10 weeks it should be clear that he/she is most likely a pullet.

    For comparison, this is a 13 week old cockerel. He was obvious at 3 weeks.
