    These are supposed to be month old pulletts. Can anyone verify the age? and sex?

    They look closer to around 6-8 weeks old. They are pullets.

    Quote:Agreed... closer to the 2-month-old mark. A one-month-old chick would still have a fuzzy head.

    Agree that they look to be closer to 2 months or maybe even 3 months. To me 2 appear to be pullets: top pic- bird on bottom , bottom pic- one on the left. Not sure about the other two.

    5-7 weeks, at 4 weeks they don't have any head feathers.

    They look like 2month old pullets to me.
    If they were cockerels of those breeds you could tell by the comb by 2 months so I think you're good on that.

    I agree with all the other posts. Pullets (both the Reds and the Rocks) around 6-8 weeks old.
