    Any ideas on gender? The one with the red comb is older than the other one, but don't know by how much.
    Chicks are 8 weeks old.[​IMG]

    First off, in the photos is it the same two chicks? Or?

    And to be able to tell more accurately, can you please provide full body shots, and comb shots in natural sunlight?

    Thanks,

    I could not tell if they were the same chicks. But, like everyone else has said the right one is a cockerel and the left one is a pullet.

    I believe it's safe to call them a pair.
