Is this possible with chicks? Thanks in advance, Sheatina
It depends on the age of the birds. Do you have pictures?
It is usually easy to sex polish around 8-9 weeks of age. You can't when they are chicks though
I've got 2 with the same coloring...they were both solid yellow as chicks, but they're different looking b now...ones crested top has rounded ends on feathers, with 1 little pale looking point of comb, and the other has spikey ends on its head, with 2 red horn looking things...looks evil to me...does this mean one is female and other male?
Chicks cannot be sexed. I mean you can guess, but even for the experienced person there's just nothing to accurately guess on - they haven't developed singular male or female characteristics by that age.
Yes, sounds like you've got a cockerel and a pullet. You'd have to post pics for a definite conformation but the red comb and spiked feathers are classic cockerel signs.
Watch out for the cockerel. They have a tendency toward aggression due to their poor field of vision. They get scared and then they get nasty. Not all will, but certainly some, more than a lot of other breeds.
