    I got these two donated to me because I have a chicken coop but I cannot have a rooster! Are these pullets or cockerels?

    Do you know how old they are? The EE on the left looks like a girl. The Wyandotte mix? on the right looks like a boy.

    I agree with you, because the Wyandotte mix seems to chase the EE around a lot.

    ^ x2 (means you agree with the above) Your EE is definitely a pullet, but I think that Wyandotte mix is a roo.
    Are these your only two birds? If so your EE is going to be very lonely. If you can't have a roo because of the crowing I would start looking NOW for a replacement bird around the same age or size, before you get rid of the roo. It wouldn't be fair to leave your little girl by herself!

    I have 6 other hens, although they are older. I just have these two separated right now.

    They both look like pullets to me.
