    Pullets or cockerel?
    We were told the white one is an olive egger and the red is a rhode island red (although it kind of looks like a new Hampshire red as well?).[​IMG][/IMG]

    We are unsure of the age but we believe the white one is between 10 and 15 weeks old.

    they both look like pullets.

    The white bird looks like a hatchery Delaware to me. I'm not seeing anything that would be an Olive Egger. That dark cockerel could be an EE, though, or just an Easter egger.

    The red bird looks like a production Red pullet.

    I'm posting more recent photos. My husband and I are worried that the white one may be a rooster after all. It's the tail feathers that keep us guessing. Any thoughts?
