    The white Rock looking chicken is a pullet/hen. How old are they supposed to be? I'm on the fence on the red. Can you get a side pic of the chicken along with a good pic of the hackle feathers?

    The white I would guess is a white Rock. And I think the red might be a red sex link pullet but I'd still like to see some pics of the hackle feathers.
