    Tried this last week, and the kids are bigger now - maybe someone has a better guess at this point?

    The one on the left is Henry/Henrietta and the one on the right is Fran/Frankie:

    Combs look more red in photo than in reality - I wonder if it was the flash:

    Any guesses are appreciated! Rationale would be helpful also.

    Not enough feathers yet. Give us a couple more weeks when they get their neck feathers in. :thumbsup

    I am sooo happy they are looking pullet-ish! Being straight run, I was worried they would both end up roos and I'd have to chose to get rid of one, and they are both such sweeties!
