    Curious to what I have here. They were abandoned just days old and I've been raising them for 2 months. Do you know what kind and gender they are? Thanks!

    All 4 appear to be pullets, production reds of some sort would be my guess. They might be New Hampshires; if so the color should improve after they molt off the juvenile feathers.

    They look like New Hampshires and pullets at that. They should be great layers. Congrats. You took good care of them.
