Newbie here! Is this a rooster?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there, first post here and I need some help sexing this bird..

I got these 2 chickens last night and was told they are both hens, although the breeder (a kid) wasnt 100% sure..
They are 8 weeks old. I'm pretty sure the gold bird is a hen but not so sure about the other.

The feathers around the neck are blunt/rounded at the ends.

Hope the pics are ok...they are very lively big_smile.png
