    I just got these 2 hens from a guy and he wasn't sure what breed they were. I'm not sure how old they are but they are pretty young because they still make chirping noises.

    They look like they may possibly be Rhodebar cockerels.

    I was told they were pullets that would suck if they are Roos :(

    I'm afraid they are probably cockerels. Pullets don't have combs that red until they are close to laying age. Also if they are Rhodebars, than the hens will be a different color.

    Yup, mymilliefleur is right, they look like Rhodebar cockerels.
