    I know that a male is supposed to look lighter, but I literally can not tell. One seems a bit lighter but not as light as the males I’ve seen online.

    Pullets!

    (If they're pure-breds, at least)

    Can you post a side view too? They look like girls to me :). I ended up with a barred rock roo that was supposed to be a girl. He grew much faster than the hen and tail was very prominent and he was taller. hope they are girls!

    Definitely look like girls :) here is a silly video of mine when they were only 3 months old (born same day!) you can see the difference:

    Pullets…if they were cockerels that would look like cockerels….it is really easy for me to tell barred rock pullets from cockerels for some reason...
