    Its been a very long time since I last had my own chickens.... but generally, I USED to be able to tell what was what once they reached a certain age, as 95% of the time, by the time the chicks were fully feathered, you could tell what was going to be what on the basis of their combs and wattles.
    Well, this little pair I'm not 100% sure about... So I thought I'd ask for the bigger opinion.

    Don't know EXACTLY what age they are, as I only got them 6 days ago...




    On the day I got them, which was last Saturday:

    (and yes, I know their bed is really messy, I wasn't expecting to get them and I got home after an EXTREMELY long day, very late at night, so I just put all of what was in their travel box, into their little nest box for the night)




    And today, Friday, 6 days later:

    I'm absolutely in love with these little darlings, especially the tan and grey chicklet.... so I'm REALLY hoping they are NOT roosters, as if they are roosters, once they start crowing, I have to move them on....
    I also have no idea what colour they are...
    The white/rusted one is odd though, how only the colours on the front half of the body have the rusty tips....

    I see nothing that would make me think roo, so I am guessing two pullets as well :) They sure are adorable!

    Thanks for the comments on how pretty they are.
    I got a call saying "you couldn't possibly take on two young chickens could you, they're those frizzley things" and I'm not even supposed to have chickens at all, but I do love frizzles, so I said I'd go look at them. I laid eyes on them and said immediately "I'll take them!!!!!!!"

    They've very obviously not had a lot of human contact, as they're very wary of people, super shy, hell to catch and when you pick them up/catch them, they SCREAM at the top of their little lungs. But I'm working on hopefully making them a bit more friendly.

    I named the tannish/grey one Lachova (actually pronounced like Luck-Ova, like its Russian, lol), the cream with rust tips is named Improla, but I call her Icey, lol.

    Awesome, thanks everybody!
    Good to get some kinda thoughts to back me up! :D

    Will have to take more pictures when they're a bit older and show you how they look as they get older.

    Wish I knew exactly how old they are, so I could know when to start expect laying.... but I think its way too soon for that yet, lol.
