Did I get duped on BRs?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought three BR chicks from TSC in March. They're beautiful and healthy but looking to be all Roos.
So local organic foods store had chicks for sale and advertised 3 BR pullets. I bought them but got home and checked them out and now I'm worried and confused.
They're almost fully feathered but 1/2 the size of my BRs and supposedly only one week younger. They have the barring of BR pullet, but have red combs and wattles already. Did I buy three black sex link Roos?

Oh wow, yeah I would say you have roosters... you need to go back and yell at them! A person should know its a pullet before selling them as "pullets"!! Thats ridiculous!

That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the input. I should have opened the box and looked at them really well and I would have known. He barely opened the box and I saw the barring and thought I had what I wanted.

Is there any hope for this one being a hen? She/he is 6 weeks old.

I guess it could possibly be a pullet but I doubt it :/.

That's what I thought. I think it's just our most submissive rooster because the other two are barred the same but have larger combs and wattles.
