    Hi there, first post here and I need some help sexing this bird..

    I got these 2 chickens last night and was told they are both hens, although the breeder (a kid) wasnt 100% sure..
    They are 8 weeks old. I'm pretty sure the gold bird is a hen but not so sure about the other.

    The feathers around the neck are blunt/rounded at the ends.

    Hope the pics are ok...they are very lively :D

    I think you have a cockerel.
