New Pullets (I hope)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I am a second time backyard chicken owner.  My first flock was in a different state.  I had 9 Leghorns.  1 rooster and 8 hens.

I moved and just started a new flock.  9 weeks ago I was given 4 chicks from a kindergarten class that hatched them as a project.  Two have already been identified as roosters and were given to a local farm. (I cannot have a rooster in the city limits).  I thought the remaining two were pullets but recently, the one pictured below began making a noise similar to a crow.  It doesn't go "cock-a-doodle-do" like my Leghorn.  It is more like "coo-cu-coo".  I think it is an Austra White.  Any ideas.  Could it be a dominant hen?

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

If you haven't noticed yet, I am the king of typos.

When I post in the "What Breed Or Gender Is This" section, I do not name hatchery/peoples' hybrids by a "breed" name (for example, Oliver Egger)--they are either a purebred or a mixed breed.
