    Hey guys! Its my first post and I have two chicks that I'm pretty convinced are roosters because of the way their tails are coming in, just want some help figuring it out seeing these are our first little babies![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    2 weeks is way too young. The tail feathers at that age don't really show anything. Post again when they are 5-8 weeks.

    Much too young. Post new photos at 6-8 weeks old. when opinions won't be just wild guesses.
