    I labeled these 1 and 2. I had a friend tell me she thought 1 was a roo, and I thought 2 was a roo. I'm hoping they are both pullets, since I hadn't planned for any cockerals. Opinions? 20180404_151938.jpg 20180404_152038.jpg 20180404_152051.jpg 20180404_152201.jpg 20180404_151954.jpg 20180404_152014.jpg 20180404_152439.jpg

    One more of #2, about a week ago. They're about 6 weeks old today. 20180328_154235.jpg

    I'd give it a couple more weeks. :) My Lavender cockerel showed much more advanced comb/wattle development at the same age. That being said, each bird matures at a different rate. Some young roos can be slower!

    So far I wouldn't be to worried about their comb development. Still a good chance of being pullets.

    I’d guess both are pullets

    Don't worry, 99% sure those are pullets, they look just like my buff orps at that age (and they're hens now) :)
