    Looks like girls to me. I wouldn't sex them by head though, instead I'd have a good look at the back, between where the wings are held.

    My first thought is girls but there is a part of me second guessing thinking the top one may be a boy. The bottom one I am 95% sure its a girl, the top just throws me because of the thin feathers. I have a dun cockerel that is about the same age and we've been able to tell the last couple weeks by his saddle feathers coming in under the wings.

    You have two girls, they look just like all of my hens did at that age. I ordered 11 straight run and I got 10 hens and one rooster but the rooster died at about 4 months and he looked drastically different from the hens from about two months old.

    Oh, I thought you had to look at the head to tell their gender.
