    First ever hatched at home chicks, about 10.5 weeks old now. Really want to know if they're boys or girls, don't want fighting as there's already a cockerel

    The left is a pullet and right is a cockerel, assuming they are multiple pics of the same 2. Your male has red feathers coming in on the wing, the obvious beginnings hackle feathers, and pink wattles and comb. Can't really see the face of the pullet, but the drab coloring is female or late bloomer.

    That makes sense, the cockerel is definitely more bossy! Any ideas on this white one? Same age, different eggs, from one of the "mutt" hens so no idea on breeding :) thanks for the help!!

    By the second bird, do you mean the white one?
