Baby chicks, part 2

Baby chicks loved being in the house and are thriving.  We ended up with just 2, and they are quite happy in their Rubbermade tub with a heat lamp.  The other day I noticed that they were beginning to smell a bit, so they have moved to the laundry room.  They still have the heat lamp. 

They have started to grow wing feathers and can fly a bit, like out of their tub.  So we have put a spare window screen on top.  This keeps them inside, but allows the heat lamp to still warm them.

Hannah named the Hot Diggity and Dawg.  Will they be roosters or pullets?

Any guesses?
