    These are both about 9 weeks old. I am guessing a hen and a roo or both hens. I am pretty sure the roo is on the right.

    i dont have giants I have australorps. Im assuming you are going by the tail feathers? By 9 weeks my BA's all had large combs. I have a little Delaware that has stunted tail feather and he is a he but his comb is bigger than the rest. Going by the comb I say both are pullets, but by the tail not sure maybe someone her with Giants can help better

    They have hardly no combs. I am guessing one is a roo because the tail feathers are different.

    We once had a pair. By 9 weeks the cockerel was twice as big as the pullet, and she was huge. My guess is you have 2 pullets.

    Thanks, I've seen pics of birds that have way more combs than these. I thought they were one of each because they have different tails. I assume the tail means nothing?
