    How old are they? Do you have more pictures? Sorry, I can't really tell from this angle.

    Both look like pullets to me. Are they Rhode Island Red?

    They're beautiful girls. You'll get lots of brown eggs from them! How's their temperament and behavior? I'm considering getting some.

    I have a couple RIR's and they are great egg layers. They sweet too, though a little bossy towards the other chickens.

    So far so good. They were calm after I cuddled them and pet them. They are in a separate pen from my copper Maran roo and black australorp hen. Those two weren't so pleased about the new additions (but they also weren't so thrilled when I added a buff orpington. But A&B were eating, pecking and scratching happily as the other two watched.

    Thanks for the info!

    I guess chickens aren't to happy about new additions to the flock (my Barred Rocks didn't care though).

    They are both hatchery grade RIR or Production Red pullets. They should be excellent layers. :eek:)
