Hi! My family has just started raising chickens. We have 12 right now, but need to lower out number to 8 as that is all our coop will be able to accommodate. 6 of them we are sure are hens, but the other 6 we are having trouble with. I was able to get pictures of two of them (the others were having much too much fun free ranging in difficult to access areas. I will attach the two pictures! Thanks so much!

Bird Beak Plant Grass Fawn

Bird Phasianidae Beak Chicken Galliformes

I will try to add pictures of the others as I can get them! And possibly better pictures of these two.

First one looks like a silkie mix. Silkies are the type of breed you have to wait for an egg or a crow ;) I had some I swore were female but ended up being males lol. The 2nd looks like a pullet.

The second one looks like a pullet and the first I would say 40% sure is a hen based on the wattle but I agree silkies are hard to tell
