The one on the right has an awful big comb for that age so my guess is it's a cockerel, I'm not sure on the other one though.
One pullet and one cockerel
- agree, the one with large comb, more upright stance, and yellow feet is the cockerel.
Looks like a cuckoo Marans pullet and a barred Rock cockerel.
Can you please try to get a picture of the wings stretched out? Looking at combs it seems one rooster and one hen but I want to double check.
How will the wing help? Just curious
Feather sexing is days olds only, and only on very few crosses of a fast feathering line and a slow feathering line. And at them one line has to be male and the other female, not exactly sure on which is which though
Tomorrow I'll get pictures of my cockerel's wing and my pullet's wing and show you. You need to look at the secondary feathers. Rooster's secondary feathers will spread apart while a hen's secondary feathers tend to stay together. I'll post a picture to show what I'm talking about. I've had poultry judges show it to me during shows. One of the most common questions I'll get asked by a judge is tell me 5 ways to sex this chicken.
