    I think you've got to boys. Though 1 might be a pullet.

    If they are both boys, you could go back and swap one for a pullet

    I got them from Meyer Hatchery. They're policy is 90%. I don't think they'll swap him. Or give me a pullet. They need to be 10 weeks old before they'll consider anything so if he is a he I'll be calling then.

    Hard to say. One could be a pullet still. Other is certainly a cockerel. You'll know for sure in a few weeks even if the hatchery wont recognize it for another 7.
