    Hi everyone,
    There has been some discussion on whether or not our chicks are both females. I know they are still young, but could you all just take a peek at the pictures and give me your best guess?

    Appreciate it,

    The comb development on both birds suggests that they are both cockerels.

    They are still too young to say for certain. However, to me, it looks like you have a pair.

    The Buff one looks like a cockerel and the Barred one looks like a pullet, but like Mountain Peeps said they are to young to say for sure.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Too young, but the Barred one looks like the only pullet here...
