    First time chicken owner, hoping I have hens but I am suspecting "Amber" might be a rooster. She is the most outgoing, a very bossy chicken. I also have a sweet rhode island red name Lucy, she likes to be right at my side. Couldn't get far enough away from her to take her photo. Fairly sure she is a girl. What do you guys think?

    I think Cookie and Henifer are pullets. I am a little suspect on Amber.

    All 3 are 100% pullets!! At 14 weeks the pointed hackle and saddle feathers would have appeared if they were boys, and your girls have very rounded, feminine feathers [​IMG]
