    They definitely look like girly girls to me--- But I'm no expert

    At only ten weeks, those are definite cockerels. Pullets of this age have hardly any comb to speak of, and it's still a pale fleshy color.

    Those boys aren't buff laced, they're splash laced.

    I'm with donrae I think, at least for sure on the first one. The second one I think a clearer picture would help, but am leaning towards cockerel too. Also agree with Splash- I have four 8 week olds, and two are Pale Blue/Splash type, they look a lot like these.
