    I know these guys are still a little young (8 weeks), but I have 2 others that are the same age and from the same batch of eggs that are obviously boys. So hoping for girls here!

    Chocolate - Chicken #1 - thinking pullet on this one?!

    And Charlie - Chicken #2 - not sure on this one. No comb at all.

    I would say that #1 is a girl and Charlie is a Charlie! Look at his streamers! adorable, both of them.

    1 is a pullet (girl). And the other looks like it will probably be a roo.

    Awwww, such cuteness! Yup, I think #1 is a pullet & #2 might be a cockerel.

    Yeah, they are pretty cute! I am REALLY happy with how Chocolate is turning out! That isn't going to be good if Charlie is a roo, that would mean out of my 4 buffs, 3 are roos [​IMG] I do have 2 feed store black silkies that look pretty goofy, so I can't tell yet and 6 more 3 week old black/blue silkies that I hatched out, I need a better girl turnout from those!
