    I purchased 14 BO pullets from TSC about 9 weeks ago, they are looking suspiciously like roo's to me at this age. [​IMG] Only 4 have no red waddles/crest at this point. Am I right? LOTS of pics...

    I'd say a couple look like roos but the rest are likely quick developing pullets.

    If they are roos, they should be some good roasters.

    I see quite a few boys. An exception may be the one in the pop door, I don't see the shiny hackle feathers there. And the one in the back of the 3rd picture.

So I went out and bought 3 more BO's just in case~ watch me end up with 6 Hens! lol Goodluck~ Just give it time, wait and see [​IMG]
