    How old are they? They look like pullets nearing laying age.

    Hi, I'm not sure :(
    I believe almost 5+ months. We received them in May from a friend who told us they were six weeks old then.

    Close up full body profiles would have worked better for identifying their gender, but based on what I can see, I think they are all pullets.

    They look like leghorn-based hybrid pullets getting ready to lay.

    Hope these help :) I do hope they're all pullets and ready to gift us some eggs :)
    Thank you all for your responses!

    They are definitely pullets. I agree with donrae, they look like some type of White Leghorn hybrids. They will likely be good layers.
