    Hi,
    Very new to all this. I have read and looked at all kinds of pictures and I still cannot tell what they are. They are RIR but cannot tell if I have hens. Two had the stripe on their heads but the feathers are different. Can anyone help me[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Those two look like pullets to me, at a glance.

    7.5 weeks. Faces are starting to get pink. That's why I was a little concerned

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I agree with Sumi...they look like pullets. At 7.5 weeks, roos would have big ol combs and no doubt be crowing.

    Enjoy your "girls" and welcome to our flock! :)
