    20190522_082834.jpg These guys have had me guessing all along. They're 6 months old and i still don't have a clue!! Neither lay or crow yet. The other rooster i hatched at the same time has been crowing for a few weeks now. The other pullet isn't laying yet tho.

    I'm thinking that the darker one is a boy and the whiter one a girl...but who knows?[​IMG]

    They both look like pullets to me.

    I'm guessing he's an olive egger. I see a modified pea comb and feathered legs...

    that's either a Maran or a New Hampshire Red.

    one in image one is a pullet, the other is a cockerel.

    Those are some interesting looking barnies for sure. I can see why they have you stumped

    I think that in the first picture the closest one to the camera is a pullet and the other a roo? Pretty hard to tell, though. For the big guy, black copper Maran maybe?

    Those are some androgynous looking chickens! Tails are sort of rooster ish..... But for six months old not THAT rooster ish... :confused: I'm stumped.

    Yeah I'm in the same boat. Very mixed bag of features these have. Not very distinctly laced, not very clear saddles or hackles, psuedo rooster ish tails, pullet looking comb/wattles for the age. Quite the curiosity
