    I was told that all of the toddlers were roos....what do you think now? I know some of them weren't 100% sure of being roos and I am just wondering who is. Lemme know what you think! Thank you for all guesses! I need to know if I need to start separating anyone. [​IMG]

    The title says 8 weeks, but she didn't say anywhere else

    My guesses:

    Bear = Roo
    Polar = Pullet
    Peppy = Pullet (going by feather and leg color)
    Sweetheart = ?

    My guess is all pullets. Your BR is definitely a pullet.

    I'm sorry about that. They turned 8 weeks old on June 23rd. I'm glad to hear that many of you say the Barred Rock is a pullet. I was scared when they were 5 weeks old and I was told she was a he...but I had purchased a pullet. All of these were actually supposed to be pullets...so anymore guesses or why you feel some are roos, would be great! I am very new at this whole gender guessing thing so I'm ready to learn!
