    Is it too early to tell? They are about three weeks old. The comb types on the two are different and one (on the right in the next pic) is bigger that the other, however doesn't have the rooster stance. Both are flighty but the smaller one is more is less so.

    I agree it is too early to tell for sure, but both have quite a bit of fleshiness to the rose comb already.

    Definitely wait and post again. The good thing about BLRW is the males and female color patterns are distinct from each other.which will begin to show up in a few weeks. The girls will get the pretty lacing while the fellas get blotchy blockier patterns.

    x2. But I'm leaning towards cockerel for at least one of them for now.

    Its too early to tell. Post some more photos in a few weeks. By that time, a cockerel will probably be getting a redder comb.
