    I think #2 might be a boy.

    PotterWatch-what male characteristics are you seeing?

    In person, aside from a little more smut on #2's back, they look identical.

    They better be girls! I can't keep a roo.[​IMG]

    The only thing I am basing it on is the stippling on its back. I bet in another couple weeks it will be much more apparent if it is a boy. I'm not %100, but it could be. If you look in this post you can see some good pictures from speckledhen that show the difference: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=239737 .

    I have 6 Delawares (10 weeks old) and at 4 weeks, their sexual characteristics were very apparent! But that's just my experience... [​IMG]
