    The red bird is a pullet for sure, and is either a mixed breed or hybrid layer stains, or maybe New Hampshire. The silkie looks like a pullet, too, but not certain on that.

    You're welcome. Watch for other opinions, though. It is good to get a consensus.

    :welcome Probable pullets. A profile shot on the larger bird would help confirm gender.
