    I only have boys and your look nothing at all like mine. I am almost inclined to say pullet. Out of 9 BR's I have had so far none looked as dark as yours and all mine were boys. Yours have a nice dark wash on the legs too. I vote pullets

    Both look like pullets, but wait on the one pictured first - if it's feathers start to turn oddly lighter w/more white than the other, it is a cockeril. But my guess is pullets.

    See speckled I am getting the hang of Br's. Just pick birds that don't look like mine LOL. Dear God I really do have rooster issues.

    They really do look like pullets. Mine had combs that were going red by that age too.
