Hoping they are both pullets. They are our favorites. So sweet, one eats out of our hands and sleeps in my 5 year olds arms.

"Sparkles"






These both look like pullets

I'm just learning about the BarredRocks as I got 7 coming soon but by the darkness in color and darkened legs I'd say fairly confidently pullets. The male will be more of a grey looking color with lighter legs. they are precious♡♡♡ I hope I'm right but that's my guess smile.png

Thank you! That's what I was hoping but browsing other posts.
They are sooooo sweet!

Given the dark barring, I'm thinking pullets on both of them. :o)

I think pullets, too. For anyone referencing my original thread, they both turned out to be pullets and are laying up a storm!
