    My chicks are both about 2 months old. I got them at Wilco so they're supposed to be girls. I have some doubts, but I'm not an expert. Here's some pictures. The first pictures are my barred rock, and the other pictures are of my golden laced wyandotte.

    Oh good! That's good news. I can only have girls where I live. I didn't want to get rid of any of them. How can you tell? I have no idea how to tell hahah...

    looks like both girls! Congratulations! On the barred rock you can tell, as the dark bars are thicker than the white barring. Heavier white barring is an indication of male. On the GLW the comb is small, and yellowish still, and she's well feathered, my guess would be pullet.
