    Thanks for looking. I keep going back and forth on this pair. I know one for sure is a cockeral. One developed much faster and is much larger, bigger tail feathers, bigger wattles, but they both have pretty big combs, but one hardly has any wattles.....but that is the slower developing one. Hoping for a pair for breeding, or do you think it's two boys? They are 7 1/2 wks old.

    I think faster developing and a longer tail means pullet, when they're chicks like this [​IMG] Not sure though

    I thought 2 boys for sure last week. But in the span of a few days, the one has developed big red wattles and the other hadn't, so I was hopeful! But ah well. I'm supposed to get more chickies next month so there is still hope!

    I'd have to agree; looks like you have two boys. [​IMG]
