I ordered females, but at 7 weeks old these two look very different:
The top bird is male, I can't see the second bird's comb or legs enough to tell.
This picture was at 6 weeks of the lower one (almost positive...)
The second bird looks like a female to me. The top one is definitely a rooster.
That's what I was afraid of :-( I only ordered 3 Delaware girls. One was so damaged in shipping or born deformed that we had to put her down the first day. Now another is a rooster, so I ended up with just one hen if this breed. Guess he'll make a nice dinner...
Delawares are supposed to be good, meaty table birds
I agree, your first bird is a male, and the second is a pullet. Delawares are actually pretty good meat birds (before the Cornish X was developed, they were a very common broiler), so he should make a good dinner.
