    Normally I'm pretty good at this but these two like screwing with me i think.
    [​IMG][​IMG] this one I'm guessing cockerel. He's starting to turn red in some areas. Month old.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] I'm guessing pullet right now. Not turning red but they both still have tiny wattles.

    So far, neither of them appear to be obvious males. I think that it is still a little young to tell.

    Both were pullets. Was hoping for a pair but I've hatched some black split boys so these will be great.

    Neither one is particularly cockerel-ish, so for now, I think both are pullets. But to be sure, I would post updated photos in a week or two.

    These are over 8 weeks old now and both are pullets. I actually picked another pullet up from the same person I got these two from at time. I have 3 pullets and 4 black split to choc cockerels now to go with them just a 7 week age difference. Plus more I hatched yesterday/today. I just wanted to update in case someone else was trying to use my pictures to sex theirs.
