First time dabbling in Dominiques and Buckeyes. Any sexing ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.

How old are the birds?

If the Dominiques are pure bred, they're all hens. The same rules apply as sexing barred Rocks, so the males are much lighter in color. I am a bit concerned about the size and redness of the combs in relation to how large the birds appear, though. That's where knowing age will help.

Same on the Buckeye, she looks like a pullet so far, but if it's under say 3 months I'm not as positive. A better comb pic would help, also.
