    I am unsure of the breed and gender of these two. I think the dark one is a Plymouth Rock pullet and the white one I have no idea on the breed but think it is a pullet as well. Also, do ALL males have the "flowing" tail feathers??

    That's some pretty poor barring, I'd assume she's a mix, not a pure Rock.

    The white one though is a White Rock.



    Love the crele in the background! [​IMG]

    Is the white rock a pullet and is it just a white rhode island red or is that the breed??

    Quote:Also, I was under the impression that the one you called a crele was a wyandotte.

    No Not a RIR, looks more like a Buff Sussex from that picture I think.

    I love the "barring" on your BR-cross! Maybe there's a spangled something in the mix? As for its and the white rock's sex, I think they're pullets with manly faces. Sometimes hens can have huge combs/wattles.
    Maybe your RIR's an EE? Your Wyandotte looks like half-EE to me too. Are those green legs?

    Nope, the one I called Crele is, well, Crele is a color. But she's not a Wyandotte. Wyandottes have rose combs.

    And no, that last girl shown is not a Rhode Island Red. Rhode Island Reds are a dark, bloody, almost blackened red color.


    The white one is indeed a White Rock. There are Rhode Island Whites out there but they're very rare, not offered by hatcheries, and have rose combs.



    PS - The OP does not have a Wyandotte or a BR cross, people. [​IMG]
