    i picked up these sultan babies a couple of weeks ago at a local feed store.
    they sure are adorable and/but with my luck they'll both turn out to be roos [​IMG]
    any thoughts on what they might be?
    thanks!

    yah, super cute right?
    it's interesting that one of them seems to have a "flat-top" an the other has a much more rounded shape to the feathers on his or her head. i was wondering if this wouldn't be, perhaps a clue?
    i'm so new to all this i'm just kinda bumping around in the dark tho . . .

    Don't quote me on it, but I think they're both pullets. My roosters have always had a red spot where their beak meets their comb. They look like standards, or are they bantams?

    cara! you made my day!

    well, the feed store said they were bantams but . . . they seem pretty huge!
    i've never raised chicks up before so i have nothing to compare them too.

    anywhoo, thank you!
