    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community! I am not that good with breeds I don't keep. But I can tell you that the bird on the right in the last pic IS a pullet. If these birds are the same age, then I will say they are both pullets. How old are they?

    You might want to post these pics in our What Breed and Gender section for more help...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    There will be others stopping by to welcome you that will know more than me! :)

    Enjoy your new birds and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    Yes the bird on the right is defiantly female. The other one is a RIR. Not sure on gender of that one. I'd guess pullet.

    I'd guess pullet on both of them but, they are still young and I couldn't guarantee it.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Both of your birds are pullets. You're mixed breed is an Easter Egger. The pea comb and greenish legs are a dead giveaway. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
