    I bought pullets from Meyer hatchery and I am trying to figure out what they are. I sold most, and still have 5 left. They will be 8 weeks old on Monday. My guess is Buff Orpington, Delaware and Leghorn. What do you think? And are the truly pullets?

    Small BO?

    I'll second your breed id on the five of them. Were all of these sexed pullets? The pink on that big buff makes me worry.

    Thanks. Yes, they were sexed at the hatchery, but that one had me wondering too. It is alot bigger than the other OB. But what a sweetheart it is. The Delaware with the darker spots is not friendly and challenges my hand sometimes. Not sure why.

    That second buff pinged my rooster radar, also. I've seen lots of late maturing buff orpingtons on this board, some are iffy even at 5-6 months. He looks to have some hackle feathers starting, and just the overall look makes me think roo. How about updating us in a month or so?

    I think you are correct with the breed on all these! They all look like pullets to me.
