    Hello new to owning chickens. Have a question. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Pullets or cockerels?

    Welcome to BYC.

    The blue in the front looks like a pullet. I can't really tell on the other one due to the photo angle.

    For more opinions, please post images of your birds in a new thread in the "What Breed or Gender is This?" forum. If you can get a clear photo of each bird, standing up and from the side, that would be perfect. Additional close ups of the head with the comb and wattle visible, and the saddle/tail areas are welcome too.

    Much better pictures, thank you.

    The other bird is without a doubt a cockerel. The first still looks henny to me in body and comb, but in these pictures I can see some slightly suspicious golden feathers coming out on the body. Can you tell me how old they are?

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I agree with Queen Misha. regarding genders.
