    Hi!

    I finally got my chickens yesterday. The lady that I got them from said she isn't sure if they're both hens. I took some pictures of them and the one on the right side is taller and has a more reddish comb and wattles. His/her tail feathers are also pointing down. I don't mind having a Roo,just curious!

    Those are pullets. I'd say the bird on the right is a little bit older or possibly just a bit faster maturing than the bird on the left.
