    So we added these two cuties and we aren't sure what they are or what gender. Hoping they are both female but it will be a 50/50 chance since we bought them from someone's flock. The lady we got them from was hard to communicate with so that's why we are so unsure! Thanks in advance. [​IMG][/IMG]

    They're probably barnyard mixes. Both look like pullets.

    Hmm I am guessing somewhere in the 6-10 week range. But that's coming from someone with very minimal experience!

    Barnyard mix pullets, probably around 2 months, give or take.
