    Purchased these two June 6. I was told they were Chanteclers. Well I was told by you wonderful people they are not. So now just curious what they might be. Hoping at least one is a hen. One definitely is a rooster.

    Thanks for your help.

    The two light colored ones are them when we got them.

    I can tell you that those are second generation red sexlinks, which means they can no longer be sexed by coloring. Those don't even have any Chantecler in them at all.

    Does the second look like a hen at least?

    Hard to tell in the pics. Can't really see the details of the feathering well at all.Try taking pictures with a proper camera. Phone cameras tend to get all pixelated when you zoom in.

    If they are a little over 3 months old "appx June 1 hatch" then I'd say the "possible hen" is likely a pullet. I would expect much more comb from a production type cockerel of this age. Like junebuggena said, a clearer picture would help to confirm though.
