    I bought 7 chicks from TSC in march, I bought what I thought were going to be hens but think I got 2 roos. Are these two cockerals or pullets?

    If you are sure they are only 8 weeks old, they are boys. If they are 16+ weeks, they are girls.

    The red one is a rhode island red, and I'm not sure what the white one is, I forgot to ask that in my original post, does anyone know what the white one would be, I'm thinking leghorn...

    White one looks like white rock. Leghorns are skinnier.
