    I'm pretty sure I've figured out the rest of my chickens, but this one has me stumped. Who can tell me the breed? It is 15 weeks old today, and I'm pretty sure it's a hen - could be wrong on the gender, though.

    Barred Plymouth rock, or possibly a Dominique

    OK, if that one is a BR, what is this one? I assumed it was a BR. Also, is it a rooster?

    Barred rock. Like my Sherman! C94D2C40-3B43-4369-900B-67970136462B.jpeg I could possibly be a Dominique but I’m guessing barred rock

    The barring is very sloppy and dark for a barred rock and a Dominique would have a rose comb so i'm going with Silver cuckoo maran

    Edit: Looks like a pullet to me, Dont really see any signs of a cockerel.

    I'm seeing two pullets here, First one is a cuckoo maran and the second is a barred rock.
    How old are they?
