help with breed and gender


Apr 20, 2015
Can anyone tell me the breed and gender of my chicks. Please..
The one ahead of the other looks like it might be a cockerel. How old are they? Age is a key factor in helping determine gender. The breeds they might be are: Rhode Island Reds, New Hampshire Reds, Production Reds, and possibly (but less likely) Amber Stars.
So at their age of about a month and a half old, I'd say the one in front of the other chicken is likely a rooster. The coloring is different and the legs appear to be thick. The combs should start to grow in a couple weeks, and that will also be a good factor for telling if it's really a roo.
They both look like pullets to me and either New Hampshire or RI Reds. I have two RI Red pullets that are 6 1/2 weeks old and they are very similar to yours.
