    I have a feeling that these two knuckle heads are pullets, but I thought I would ask. They are 8 weeks old.

    I am NOT familiar with the breed, do they usually have large combs and wattles at this early age? The second is redder than the first

    Wyandotte pullets get a little pink in the comb and wattles pretty early. They also have a tendency to look pinker if they are flushed from stress of being held. I don't see anything in these photos that screams cockerel yet. If you can post a couple photos of them standing on their own showing a profile view and the feathers on their backs, I can probably give you a better answer.

    I would! But they are TERRIFIED of the camera. They will not stand still for me to take a photo, they just flip out. They are fine being cuddled and stuff, just the camera. lol

    They sound like my birds, super friendly, but when the camera comes out, they're gone.
