    If someone asked me if these are pullets, I'd say, "Duh!" But the one on the left has thick white wing tips, has dark splash on her(?) leg that only goes to her ankles, and she stands noticeably upright already compared to her sister. Time will tell.

    Here are the feet of the left chick:

    ... and the feet of the right chick:

    I'll post better pics when I can take them. I like the threads that show progress so that's what I think I'll do.

    1st pic is @ 2 days old.

    2nd and 3rd are @ 4 days old.

    I just went down to the feed store today and saw chicks that looked exactly like this. I just can't remeber the name It's one of those annoying things I feel I should remeber.

    Here are some recent photos. This is the chick on the left (in the OP). Her(?) name is Volt. She's the one in question.

    Here is the chick on the right (in the OP). Her name is Ayn. She is very fond of humans. If I put my hand into the brooder, she's always the first to come, and very often, she hops right onto my hand. I'm sure she's a pullet. Her wings are almost all black with very slight barring.

    Volt's wing feathers are starting to come in. They're more black than white now, but her wings are growing noticeably slower than Ayn's. I realize these aren't the best pictures, but I posted them anyway. I'll post better ones eventually. [​IMG]

    For the heck of it, here are a few of our other chicks...

    Here is a better picture of Volt

    Here is her wing. I'm almost thinking she may not a barred rock but a cuckoo maran, but I'm a first timer.
