    Hello, I introduced myself on the New Member forum this morning. I'm new to chicken ownership, despite my years-long adoration for them.

    Last week we picked up three 13 week-old chickens (two Ameraucanas and one GLW). We're hoping for pullets, but we're not sure if they're all hens. I don't notice anything obvious to distinguish.
    I realize these aren't the best photos, but maybe someone with experience has an idea?

    Only one photo is showing up (maybe you haven't uploaded the others yet?). However, the bird pictured looks like a pullet.

    Oops, clearly a newbie. Still learning my way around the forums with my phone.
    I can't seem to attach the second photo to the thread.

    Thank you for your help!

    I'm thinking the two in the second picture are pullets, although I think the comb looks a bit pink on the GLW? A close up picture of that one would be good.

    Both birds in the second photo also appear to be pullets.

    I am thinking the same thing. Full body close up would be helpful :)
