    I posted a few pictures of my 7 week old chickens yesterday. The feed back was so helpful. I have two more I was hoping I can get some help identifying. I believe they are Plymouth Rocks but not sure. Can anyone help me sex them? I think these are both pullets though one is debatable 11.JPG 12.JPG 21.JPG 22.JPG .
    Thanks again. This site is extremely helpful!!!

    They both look like barred rock pullets.

    That's good to hear. My neighbor may be short a female and she can use one of these as she does not have one. Thanks!!

    There is a difference in color among your photos some look like the bird has gray bars and others look black. If they are true gray bars with wider white areas you have cockerels. If they are dark black with narrow white areas they are very likely pullets.

    How many different birds are we looking at?

    First thank you for taking the time to check out my post. You are looking at only two birds. The head and the tail of each one. First the head, then the tail of each. I read a few articles that said if the tail feathers are round it is most likely a pullet. Which I think makes sense. I don't have many birds to judge but the feathers are black and white. So I am assuming pullets
