    I am still quite new at keeping chickens. I bought 2 pullets but I am beginning to think this one isn't a pullet at all? Can anyone help me with this? I'm also unsure of the breed. Thank you. [​IMG]

    The one in the front is a cockerel, the other looks like a pullet. My guess is that it's a black sex link cockerel, and the other is a black sex link pullet. I think I see some red feathers around her face?

    Yes the black one has red feathers.
    It is approx 6 months old, should it be laying by now? It has a very small comb. The weather here is cool, heading into winter now.

    Don't know what breed but the one in front is definitely a cockerel, the black one is a pullet.
