    It might be 2 and 2, unless you are really unlucky (or lucky how ever you look at it) and have 4 cockerels. I hope I'm wrong, but I think you might have 4 cockerels.

    My luck has been there before. 12 roos and 2 pullets last year.
    They are only 10weeks so between 14-16weeks it should be more obvious.

    I have 5 chickens all 10 weeks old and 2 of them are red sex link females and their comb and wattles look like your two who have smaller combs/wattles, so you may be okay with those 2 chicks [​IMG]

    My guess is 2 + 2 with top left and bottom right being the boys.
