    I have 2 BYM chicks that are 13 weeks old and the others in that group have colored up and some trying to mate already.

    I’m hoping since they are not showing cockerel tendencies or any major coloring/plumping that they are pullets.

    Look like pullets, especially when compared to the NN frizzle.

    Also not seeing cockerel signs in feathering yet.

    Cute birds. :love

    Thanks @EggSighted4Life! That’s what I was thinking. Their brother Ollie is HUGE and is already trying his way with the ladies. 325B1185-0E00-463A-A4FF-F22960C0B685.jpeg

    @Crazy for Chickens! he has Ayam in him from his grand father. Here is his Mom and Dad (@20 weeks) with both being large birds I’m not surprised he is this big at 13 weeks.

    @Crazy for Chickens! I don’t for sure but her Mom was one of my original ladies 4 years ago that went to a friend who had AC’s. This was her Mom (grey hen). Both hens are Olive Egger gals. The combs have always thrown me off as it looks almost jungle fowl (chewed bubble gum).
