    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! [​IMG] 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?

    Yay! [​IMG] I knew it! I was just so shocked how quickly she matured compared to the others... they're all 20 weeks but shes the only one that stands out.

    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.
