    I hatched out two Isbars about 2 months ago. They both looked like hens until recently their combs have gotten redder. The darker one looks more like a hen but the lighter one has a redder comb. Please tell me your thoughts.[​IMG]

    They're not screaming cockerel to me. I'm not familiar with Isbars, but by this age most cockerels will have made themselves known by the comb.

    They look more like hens then roosters but I could be wrong. Post some more pictures when there older and it might be easier to tell if there hens or not.

    I'm thinking that they are pullets.

    Another picture. The light one looks like a rooster compared to the dark one. Any thought?[​IMG]
