    The first looks like a cockerel.

    Oh dear [​IMG] was told its a pullet, how long before they start making morning noises? I haven't heard any noises out of either one of them. If the first one turns out to be a boy I will have no choice but to re home as roosters are banned in urban residential areas [​IMG]

    Agree they have something barred, but not necessarily Rock. Polish or maybe some Silkie a few generations back. The first bird is indeed a cockerel.

    He should start fairly soon I would think. With that much comb color, the gold in the wing and the saddle feathers starting to poke through there is no way it could be a pullet.
