    We got these 2 a few weeks back, I was told pullets, hoped and prayed as the days went by, was told maybe pullets here BUT not that they have hit the 11 and 13 week mark I am pretty sure I know the answer. Im looking for outside opinions.

    First one looks like a pullet and second like a cockerel. Looks like you have a pair.

    They are both cockerels. With combs like that at their ages and the pointed saddle feathers, no doubt. Sorry. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I think you know the answer. [​IMG] If they were girls, their combs would not be that big and red at their age.

    Both cockerels, sorry [​IMG]

    Pointed hackle and saddle feathers just don't occur on hens.

    their combs are way to red to be pullets
