    I have two eight week old what I believe to be New Hampshire Reds.
    My question as always is cockerel or pullet?
    Any help is appreciated I am still trying to figure out the whole gender identification process. [​IMG]

    I can't tell much from the photo but I'd guess pullets for now.

    The one on the left is a pullet, the one on the right isn't showing very distinct signs of being a cockerel even though its comb is slightly pinker. I would wait another week or two and see how it develops before giving it a final verdict.

    I THINK pullets from what I could tell.
