    Your dark one is a Production Red, and I'm leaning towards it being a cockerel. The light one is definitely a pullet, and appears to be some sort of Easter Egger/gamebird mix.

    Dark one looks like a Production Red (hatchery Rhode Island Red), possibly cockerel, and the other bird may be an Easter Egger mix, definitely a pullet.

    Looks like a RR and Production Red. My PR's are a lighter orange like yours. But I'm knew to this chicken thing so I could be wrong. Here's a pic of mine.

    and when we say for sure a pullet how do we tell, just so i know for future birds?

    and what are we saying age wise 3-4 months? if so another month or so before laying?
