    I think they are about 5 weeks old and they were bought as girls almost a week ago. I need to know so that I can let the breeder know so that we can exchange them for girls before she runs out of chicks. [​IMG]

    Hmm.. it's hard to tell. Do you have pictures of their whole body? What makes you think they're roosters?

    Maybe it will be easier to decide on the gender of 1 when I put up full body shots (as suggested by The Red Rooster [​IMG] ).

    Edited to make sense. [​IMG]

    Quote:I think they are roos because of how red/pink their wattles are and the pink tinge to their combs. The breeder thought they were girls based on the shape of their feathers.

    Here are a few more photos of the silver boy/girl. I had to wait for my husband to come home and help and so the light (inside) is not good enough to get decent photos of the darker one's feathers. I hope to get better ones of both tomorrow.

    Quote:Thanks! [​IMG] He/she is lovely. The photos do not do it justice as we were using our camcorder. Hubby is going to try to get his phone to sync with the pc again as it has a better camera.
