    These were purchased as sexed pullets but are looking a bit suspicious. They will be 4weeks old on wednesday. Unsure 1 and Unsure 2 have been battling for dominance the last 2 weeks and one finally conceded, sort of.

    Are you sure they are bantams? They look like standard sized BOs to me. Bantams would be much, much smaller at 4 weeks.

    At this point, they are too young to tell anything about gender. But if I had to take a guess based on feather patterns, I would say:
    1. Cockerel
    2. Cockerel
    3. Pullet
