    I have no idea on the Sultans but the reds look all to be pullets and around 16 or 17 weeks old...my opinions

    I have no idea on the Sultans or the age of the RIR's, but I agree with TuffOldHen that they all look like pullets.

    Yeah! Nothing against Roo's just not really prepared to take that on...I'm a neebie so trying to keep things simple......
    Just a question how are you judging the age..? Just by their size? I got them the end of May and they told me then they were approx. 4 to 6 weeks then.....so I have been trying to questimate since then ??????????

    I'm judging their size, combs and wattles and if they were 4 to 6 weeks old the end of May...I'm pretty close on their ages then..give or take a week...
