    I think these are a bit young yet to be able to tell. Can you post some new pics next week?

    I agree that the top is most likely a pullet, but I'm leaning roo on the bottom one due to the patchy natural of the pattern on his wings.

    I think that's molting you're seeing on the lower, right. My red-buff gal lost patterning as she went through her first sets of juvie feathers and then regained patterning as a hen. Her back looks pretty even yet with those keyhole markings which doesn't seem to happen on males.

    I think they are too young right now. One of them I am leaning more towards boy, but I don't think they are feathered out enough to guess yet.

    With Draye on this one. I find the white and black ones are usually boys.
