    Hello there, and welcome to Backyard Chickens! I agree with everybody it is a pullet, though the other chicken in that pic looks a bit like a cockerel........thanks for joining the community, I hope you enjoy it here!

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I agree with @CuzChickens the barred is a pullet and the other appears to be a cockerel. [​IMG]
