    These are our 4 chickens, we got them from a local childrens farm. We are just curious as to the sex. They are about 15 weeks old.
    Thanks all for your help

    Lucy and Tiger are cockerels. Fructose and Penny are pullets. They are very lovely! [​IMG]

    That depends on the cockerel. I have one that is 18 wks. old now and hasn't crowed once! On the upside of things it looks to me like Fructose is a beautiful Black Orpington and Penny is a gorgeous Welsummer! [​IMG]

    I dont think Fructose is a black orpington..
    doesnt have the fluffy look for one...
    but also it looks like it has a beard..
    tomcassie, does Fructose have a beard or fluffy stuff on her chin?

    I love the name fructose! I think she is an EE though.
