    No expert here but looking like pullets. P.s I adore BR they are the sweetest breed I have. Very goofy and curious. <3

    Your BR is a pullet. You can tell by her feathering. But please wait until they're six weeks old, then post pics of their combs.

    Hi Hannah
    Most hatchery quality RIRs feather at different speeds depending on sex, males feather slowly and females feather fast, i'm not sure where you got them but most hatcheries have this kind of RIR. If that is one of these RIRs then it is a pullet.

    Thanks so much! And I appreciate the insight on BR! With my first flock I made the mistake of getting ALL RIR's -7 so it was just a blurr of red. Their names since I couldnt tell them apart.... Chicken, Chicken, Chicken, Chicken, Chicken, Chicken, Chicken.... I love this little BR (she) is like you say really curious, always the first to run out at me - I always think she's saying HI, I like to party!! Thanks again!
