In the first picture, the five birds in the foreground are pullets.  I am unsure of the reddish bird in the back.  Can you post a picture of this bird?

x2. I'd guess that bird in the back to be a cockerel based on what I can see of it.

I feel the same way - not 100 %, but I think I can make out male hackle and saddle feathers when I enlarge the picture.

Look at how the tail feathers are curving on the red one! Sorry, that’s a cockerel.

I think the rest are pullets.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

I agree with the one in the back being a rooster, but I also think that the very front bird is also a rooster. I think that is the same bird in the picture of a single bird. To me, I think he is a rooster. I could be wrong, not always is it easy to tell in pictures. I think 3 hens and 2 roo's

They all look like pullets to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

^ Yep, I agree. That last picture of the red bird looks very girly (if you're sure thats the same red bird, that is smile.png ). If you have any cockerels, they'll likely start crowing very soon.
