Can somebody please tell me if these two are pullets or young roosters?

    Thanks for the feedback guys... Just to let you know the black one has a green shine to her feathers.. Is this normal? I'm glad the little white one is a pullet... One of my exbatts that I rescued went broody and hatched out this little one :)

    It's not at all uncommon for black chickens to have a greenish sheen to their feathers (especially when they are in the sunlight). My Black Australorps have that greenish sheen, and so did the Black Jersey Giants that I had in the past.
