    I only got two out of my hatch and I think I have one hen and one rooster.

    wow, beautiful color! How old are they? I have an 8 week old GLW and she has no comb or wattles yet.

    If they both start crowing, I will probably cry. I paid $20 for a dozen eggs so I could hatch these and only got these two. Those are some pretty expensive roosters!

    My neighbor has a BLRW rooster and he is so nice! He's beautiful too!

    With those vibrant colors and red comb, I'd say you have boy's too.

    Out of the 3 eggs(I had 7 total and 3 made it) I hatched 2-3 were boys.:/. I rehomed the two older ones and kept the youngest. Hatching eggs is a gamble with sex, but well worth the experience.

    How old are yours? I have 3 that are in the 6-8 week range and I'm trying so hard to figure out what they are! This might give me a good comparison... From what I understand the BLRW are difficult to sex so I'm still holding out hope for a pullet but at this point I've pretty much succumb to the reality that I likely have 3 cockerels.
