    I think you're right on the first one. Looks like a pullet to me.

    The second one, nothing screams cockerel at me, though the face make look a bit like my BR packing peanut males. Is it feathering out more light-colored than the other one?

    Here's some of mine at 17 days, so maybe a few days younger than yours. These are definitely cockerels, now 15 weeks old.

    The first one has more deeperwhite stripes than the second one and yep the grey is a hint lighter than the first one.
    I figured the first one was a pullet just needed more oppion could not convince myself, im hopeing that the second one is also a pullet.
