    These are my two 4wko OEGB chicks. I'm thinking a cockerel and pullet?

    You could be right, but I think it is too early to tell. Some chicks develop faster than others. :thumbsup

    i would wait another 2-4 weeks for gender although it is possible

    I think the top one is a definite cockerel. The bottom one could be a pullet, or it could just be developing more slowly than its sib. Cute chicks!

    sevenbabychicks,
    Thank you for your reply. I'm also pretty sure the top one is a cockerel. The bottom one is smaller than the top one so I'm hoping for a pullet & not a slower developing cockerel. They are the only OEGBs I have so I'll be bummed if they are both males!

    I agree with sevenbabychicks, but keep your fingers crossed, just in case. Very cute chicks! [​IMG]
