    These two "girls" are 6 weeks 2 days old now. Sorry for the bad pictures-they are free range and tough to catch!

    It's really hard to tell at this stage. I'd lean more towards pullets though...

    So far they're looking like pullets. Too early to know for sure though.

    Agree neither one is screaming rooster, but Opr boys can be slow to show themselves. I'd be more suspicious of the bird in front, it's legs look quite a bit thicker. You should have a better idea in another month.

    X2 on that. Young BOs have often been notoriously difficult for BYC members to sex. I hope for your sake that they are both pullets.

    They look like pullets to me.

    I'm thinking pullets on both of them.
