    My guess. It's sort of hard to tell.

    Guessing roosters, both don't seem to be dark enough to be pullets.

    I second StrawberryHouseMouse's answers; exactly what I was thinking for each one. Sorry, if you wanted all hens.[​IMG]

    Well it's not that I wouldn't WANT roosters, just living in the downtown core, next to a school in a city that doesn't allow chickens in the first place kind of puts the damper on that.

    Shoot, now what?

    I have three little kids attached to two (or three) potential roosters. The hatchery I got them from doesn't guarantee sex on Barred Rocks and not on orders under 30, meaning...I'm screwed?
    I wonder if I wrote them, maybe they would give me some type of credit. It cost me $25 for the four of them so...

    Now to me, the two in the second picture look a lot alike, although you're saying that maybe the one on the left is a hen?

    Well if at least two turn out to be hens then that is good...here's fingers crossed. I welcome all other opinions as well.
