I have an old English game (the lighter) and a Golden sebright. (The darker)
    I think that they are both pullets, though this is my first time raising chicks, so I can’t be to confident. Any input would be very appreciated!
    Thanks so much.

    Old English is a pullet, the red chest is a female specific trait. The Sebright looks like a too. A Sebright cockerel of this age should have much more comb growth by now.

    Agree, both appear to be pretty pullets. :)
