    I'm very new to chickens. This is our Welsummer chick. Do you think it's a pullet?

    and then this is one of our Buff Orpingtons, this one looks different from our other 2, so I figured this was either a pullet or cockerel and the other 2 were the opposite. Haha!

    That was my guess, too! I hope that means the other 2 I have are pullets. :D I can't keep roosters per my city rules.

    Your Wellie is a girl, that buff orp looks like a little boy.

    I think they are 4 weeks, but I am not sure. I forgot to ask the lady that hatched them.

    Looks like Wellie pullet and a Orp cockerel.

    Your wellie is definitely a pullet. The Orp is a cockerel.

    Yay! Thank you everyone! I am so excited! I am pretty sure I have 3 hens and 1 roo. I have a Marans that I am unsure of, going to post pics of that one in the next few days. I can't have Roo's here so I'm happy to have the majority of hens.

    I know this is an old post but, did your Welsummer turn out to be a hen? I ask because I have one that has a pure salmon chest and another that looks just like yours salmon with little flecks of black/grey.
