    They are young to be certain, but I am thinking both are male. The first is white and the 2nd partridge.

    With different photos I might make a different guess. They are really young to tell for sure.

    No, I meant that they are really too young to tell for sure.

    Based upon the photos, they look like boys. Different photos on a different day might make me change my mind, or not--give it a few more weeks. Your partridge has a lot of penciling for a boy, but I have a pullet with a similar amount that kept me guessing for a long time. And even not it is possible, although I don't think so, that I am judging her gender incorrectly.
