    I'm just praying my chickens are hens as we cannot keep roosters here. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I agree, no rooster signs at this age. You're probably pretty safe to call pullets on both.

    All of your birds look like pullets so far.

    Yippeeeeee!!!!! Thank you for the great news!!!!! I was really worried because here we cannot have roosters. And I'm really attached to my chickens already and cannot see myself giving them away to someone and not knowing their fate!!!! That would make me insane!!!!! I'm a huge animal lover as you can probably tell by this post!!!!! My chickens are strictly my pets and I'm learning as I go as I've never had chickens before... but truly a wonderful experience so far!!!!! Thanks again to everyone who has written to me!!!!!
