    I think they're 7 weeks old. Can anyone tell if these are hens or roosters?

    Any guesses on the breed also? I think #1 is Buff Orpington. Not sure about #2.

    Thanks for the help!!

    I'm going to go with cockerel on the first one (buff orpington) and pullet on the second one (Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire Red?) I'm trying to think which one of my two she looks the most like [​IMG]

    Thanks everybody! I think I have more cockerels than pullets. Just as I feared! [​IMG]
