    G'day everyone!

    Some of you might remember my chickens!!! well they are getting older now, so i thought i'd post some more pics for people to try to guess what breed they are and what gender?

    they are approximately 2 months old.....

    we have 3, and this is a pic of each of them! thanks!!

    I'm thinking White Plymouth Rocks, usually just called White Rocks. Not sure on the gender.

    Wrong body type to be a Leghorn, I think. Some people on BYC have White Rocks, so maybe they can confirm it.

    No guess but I just wanted to comment on the second picture. I love the top of your dog's head peaking over the edge of the window.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    My guess is white rock pullets.

    ChickenChief...
    Looks just like our two White Rocks. They are both named "One of the Pearls" because we can't tell them apart. They are both 17 weeks old, their combs are getting really red. As far as the sex...I would say they are hens but I am FAR from an expert....yours just like a lot like ours:

    Oh...I always forget how many photos I have posted here on our backyardchickens page it shows our White Rocks growing up:

    White rocks.

    I'm going out on a limb and say the first one is a cockerel and the other two are pullets.
