    These are supposed to be girls but the Buff has a larger comb than the rest of the girls and the neck feathers are longer and pointier. The Wyandotte just looks awfully red in the face to be a girl... whaddya think? They're both a couple of months old.

    The SLW looks more like a cockerel to me than your BO.

    I have just sold my 9 week old BO cockerel who had a lot more comb and waddle development than yours.

    The SLW is a boy, but the BO looks more like a pullet to me.
