    Seeing as my other one turned out to be a rooster, now i'm wondering about these ones. 6 months old, no eggs yet, but no crowing either!

    The heads are really blurry, but the bodies look hen-ish. Don't worry, I had a hen go to eight months without a single egg from her, where her sister layed at three months. [​IMG]

    These look henny to me, though I'm thrown by the green sheen on the GLW in the first picture. I think that's a camera artifact, though.

    Hens. The saddle feathers will look like overlapping clam shells(?) rather than long thin strands.

    They are both pullets. In a lot of breeds with black feathers, both sexes have green sheen, so I don't go by that.

    Both lovely pullets. The coloration and lack of saddle feathers are your telltale signs.
