    Does anyone have a picture of what 12-15week old RIR or Barred Rock pullets look like? I am a newbie and have been offered pullets that are this age... and I have no idea what they will/should look like.. Thank you all...Dixie

    They will look like "scrawny" mini-adults... sorry, I don't have pics of any at that age readily available. They should have their adult colors and such, but will still be converting to adult plume.

    They will look like smaller, maybe skinnier versions of adult chickens, only their combs will not be prominent. The combs will still be chick small and faint pink instead of red. It's a great age to get pullets, in a few weeks they're ready to lay!
