    I am hoping for one of each. Might be both boys. What do you think?

    How old are they? If they're fairly young, the comb of the front chicken is telling me cockerel and the back one pullet. I'm having trouble seeing if the possible-he has any hackle or saddle feathers, though.

    They are 8 weeks. They both have wattles but one is a lot lighter and a bit smaller.

    At 8 weeks I'm thinking both cockerels.

    That's a big comb and wattle for 8 weeks. The one thing I'm undecided on is that I don't see any hackle or saddle feathers in the picture. Does he/she in the front have any?
