    The black one looks like a pullet. Can't tell on the other need a lottle better picture but he may be a cockeral looking at his crest.

    The black looks like a pullet. I need to see the other one facing front, with crest held or pulled back., so I can see shape and size of comb.

    X2 drumstick. Black one lookalike a pullet. Need better picture of the white one, but I'm thinking pullet on that one, too.
     
  9. Good Morning! The babies are up & running around so it was hard to get good photos that you guys requested so I hope these will do. Thank you all very much for your help! :)
