    I have 2 chickens that i got from a farmer 2 days back, but he told us that they were too young to figure out the gender! He also never mentioned an age... so I was wondering how old they look, and what breed they are? Some say the golden/yellowish chicken looks like a comet or BO. Others say the red/brownish one looks like a speckled sussex! Help? & What gender?

    *I couldn't figure out how to put the pictures directly on here, but heres a link*

    Both pullets! Maybe a brown lehorn and a buff something. I'm not sure on what age 7-12 weeks maybe.

    Ah, thank you! To tell ya the truth, I'm quite glad that you think their both pullets! I was leaning against 7-8 weeks. Buff Orpington maybe? Some say sex-link (comet) & another said the lighter one looks like a speckled sussex! I'm at a lost.. but thank you very much for your comment [​IMG]

    They look like mixes. The red one is a cockerel. I think I see saddle feathers coming in on the buff, so that would make them both males.
