    I think they are both boys but I was really hoping for both girls I have to re home them now. They are about 9 or 10 weeks old. What do you think?

    the first one is a pullet by feathers.. 2nd i cant quite tell. just because they have pink in the comb doesn't necessarily mean they're roosters. I've had some pullets come like that (often).

    The only hope for you is if #1 is a pullet. #2 is a cockerel.

    For some reason both of them look more like girls today I guess I will just have to wait they are crazy little things what ever they are.
