    I have two seramaals hatched same day during End of May. and the combs are same size relatively small but one has higher arched way fancier and arched tail feathers and is taller and larger than the other one plus shows s little more aggressive traits like it will protect thr smaller one.

    I can likely tell you from photos, seramas can be sexed pretty young.

    I could only get the larger one aka the presumed male to not be a a spaz buthe tried to snap a photo of the feather
    Shapes and size difference.

    the SMALLER one is always hiding behind it or the feeders.

    They are a very delicate breed:)

    The smaller one is definitely a pullet, that shy behavior matches with most pullets. I believe the other one is a slower developing cockerel and that's why his comb is not particularly large or red yet. Body type and the personality you described have me saying cockerel. You can post update photos in a week or two for more definite answers though. They're beautiful little birds!

    Every one of my Serama roos develops a white patch on their wing.
    I thought little Esmerelda was a girl but she's now got the patch so guaranteed roo.
    Tiniest roo I've ever raised.
