    Help mw identify our pullets please! :)
    The sister to the first has more red in her feathers. It looks like the white (super friendly) may be getting in a little brown tips. TIA!

    We got them at TSC so I have no idea! haha

    Did find the potential breeds picture we took though...for the White it says Amberlink, white leghorn, commercial black, red sex link, golden comet or tetra tint. Red pullets say: Rhode Island Red, New hampshire red, red sex link, production red

    haha oh no! I'll try to get better pictures of their combs today. If they are roos I'll be so sad! We're not allowed to have them and they are quickly becoming our favorites. :(

    Don't worry both will not be roos. The first looks like a pullet. If the breed is Sex link. Then they are sexed by color when they hatch. They can be told apart by color when the hatch. The females being Red and the males being white. Thats why it is called sex link. They are breed that way. The first one dose look like a girl. I don't see a cob. As for the second one, it could be a roo.
