I purchased 14 pullets from my local feed store... but everyone knows how those "pullet runs" can be surprise here's a cockerel for ya! :barnie All my "pullets" are around 20 weeks old. I'm nearly certain shes a pullet because she has not crowed yet. Shes just very mature looking compared to my other pullets. Her comb is much bigger and redder than the other girls. I'm just hoping she is gonna be the first to lay and not a cockerel!

Here's a picture of her or him?

 

 


Here's some pictures of the other girls for comparison. :yiipchick

That is a pretty little POL (Point of Lay) pullet!

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

All pullets. A few of my Barred Rocks started laying at 19 weeks, and the rest were all laying by 22 weeks. Eggs should be on the way very soon.

I'm playing the waiting game now! I literally made a countdown the minute I got them (counting down to egg laying age)! lol I cannot wait for fresh eggs! :drool

Pullet.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
