    How old are they? They look too young to accurately sex right now. I would post pictures in a few more weeks.

    If you look under there wings there is a line of feathers. It was once claimed that if it is straight it is male and if it is jagged then it's female. Idk if true. Never tried it out myself

    They are a little young. You should post pictures again in about two weeks. However, neither are screaming cockerel at this point.

    This only works for day old chicks of certain breeds.

    Thanks for you input. I will post them again in a couple of weeks. I'm fairly new to raising chickens and this is my first season to incubate eggs. Still a little giddy. It's gone very well, but...what a learning curve!
