How old? They both look like roos to me ...

I tried to get as good s picture as I could, but they're a very active chicken

4 week old Golden Laced Wyandotte - Gertrude or Gerold?
This is our fattest chick, who is also infamous for stealing our seats when we're not looking
My guess on pullet number 1 is pullet because I don't see any wattles. My 5 week old polish has prominent wattles already. I could definitely be wrong though. Polish are hard to sex.. smile.png

Maybe a genetic default? Or a different breed. Brahmas have feathered legs.

The red one looks like a hatchery RIR the black one looks like an Australorp. Could you get better pictures for sexing? How old? I think the black one maybe a cockerel.

Do you just need more light or a different angle picture for sexing?

I'm pretty sure the Australorp is a cockerel but we will need better (side view) pictures to be sure.
