We acquired these at one week old , they are now about four weeks (Oct 6th) and we're complete beginners. I've looked at other forum pics and think that perhaps Sweep is rooster due to curled tail feathers and slight pink comb, Sweep being pullet due to erect tail feathers. I'd be grateful if you'd share your thoughts too. Thanks.

The white one sure has a large comb for a 4 week old. Makes me lean to it being a roo.

What kind is the black one. It seems to early to tell on it for sure. Dont see anything that screams roo to me yet.

No idea what kind they are. Someone said black one may be a Maran pullet as its tail feathers are straight and tall. I am a novice and acquired these 3 weeks ago. They're living in the greenhouse at the moment. Thanks for help.
