    I used to think these 2 RIR were cockerels, but starting to believe they are pullets[​IMG]

    How old are they? The one closest to the feeder looks very boyish. Knowing their age and some better pictures might help :)

    The RIR in the top of the picture looks like a pullet. The one on the bottom is a cockerel. As is your big Blue/Red (mutt?) to the left of the photo.
