    I went to the swap last weekend and got these sweet lil muchkins from a super nice lady. She had no clue on sex, but she did know that they are 11 weeks. So Im wondering what I got here a male and female or two males or two females. Thanks in advance for your imput.

    Too young for me to tell.

    The bearded one looks like a girl and the non bearded like a boy [​IMG] But they could both be girls [​IMG]

    They both look like boys to me, but try giving it some more time. That will probably help us give you a more definitive answer.

    Get me a straight front on shot of their beaks. So, I can see the shape right above the beak. Boys should be a block looking u shape and the girls should be a more rounded u looking shape. This isn't 100%, but can give you a better idea.

    Does the one with the smaller crest have a single comb? If so, I'm thinking it's a cockerel. The other with the larger crest might be a pullet. She has more of round spot above her beak.
