    I am sorry for the quality of these pictures but I got what I could and hope someone can help me determine if these are roosters or hens.

    I hope maybe I have a hen and a roo but I couldn't really get a great pic and once I got over in the pen and got ahold of one of them I raised up to take it toward the coop and apparently we didn't turn all the nails under like we thought and I jammed the nail right in my back close to my spine. Needless to say I was in to much pain to get anymore pictures. Sorry guys. Maybe I will have some of your thoughts on what these are. Thank you so much.... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The smaller one has a tail feather that comes out and curls down I was trying to get a pic of that but after I hurt myself I didn't hang around to catch it. The bigger ones tail feathers does like a pullet but I am new to loving the bantam breeds and I have no clue on the smaller chickens.

    I agree with Ve, I believe you have 2 pullets.

    I think they are too young to tell for sure. My RI Red Roos looked like girls for 4 1/2 - 5 months.

    Louieandthecrew I am actually a female!

    I thought my RIR Rooster was a hen for the LONGEST time so... I don't know for sure but it looks like you have a hen and a roo to me [​IMG]

    Well, whatever they are, they are both the same sex...they are identical.

    Here are the other pics I just took I caught the other one for a close up pic the only difference in them are their tail feathers. The one that I think might be a hen wouldn't come close enough to grab again and after the incident yesterday with the nail I am not attempting to go back in the pen until my hubby solves the problem.
