Bought these two at 2 weeks old. In some pictures they are under 2 months (in house) and others they are just under 3 (in run). They were vented at 2 weeks to “guarantee pullets” but lately I’ve been thinking that the white and black one might be a roo. What do you all think? Tried to upload pictures where you could see the feathers better. Also, any idea of what breed these two are? Just barnyard mixes? When I bought them I was told one was an azure and one was a Easter egger but I no longer think that is the case. Any information would be appreciated as unfortunately I cannot keep a rooster (bylaw profits)

I believe you are right but I would like to see a good close-up photo of the one in question of the face/head/comb. Maybe you could have someone hold it so you can get a real good close-up photo?
Also a close-up of the area just before the tail the saddle area, side view and view from the top.😊

The buff one is a pullet, could be a Buff Orpington but has lighter color coming in so very well could also be a cross (perhaps a White Leghorn x Buff Orpington cross). The black and white one looks like a hatchery stock Silver Laced Wyandotte cockerel (which could explain why he has the single comb and not vey good lacing).

I agree. Looks like a boy, but closer photos could be helpful.

Also welcome to BYC! So glad you decided to join us! :celebrate
