    My neighbor gave me 2 5 week old "pullets"
    Pretty sure one is a Cockeral. What do y'all think? [​IMG]

    "She" also has tiny bumps where I think spurs would be. Looks like they are budding.
     
  4. All my Pullets had "Spurs", but are not roosters. The "spurs" Never grew and to this day remain bumps on the back of their legs. I don't see any obvious differences in leg thickness--at least from the photos--and no size difference. One of them seems to be ahead in comb growth, but I think you have two pullets there.

    I see two pullets, but not 100% sure.. pay close attention to the sounds they make as they get older, a cockrel will have a defined crow, even in youth!

    How old are they?
    Do you see the pointy hackle & sadle feathers on either of them?
    I think they look like pullets.
