    Ok so I bought 6 RIR chicks that were supposed to be Pullets but I think these 2 are roos. These are 8 weeks in the foto. Please help if they are roo I am going to try to find them a home.

    And this is my Bantam. Fuzz (because of the "hairy legs") is 6 weeks. I have been told it is a Mille Fluer D'Uccle (sp). I am hoping this is a roo I will keep it.

    I think they look like pullets? Do you have pics of all of them? Comparing them will help.

    The last pic of the Mille, looks more roo.

    Really ! They have much larger an redder combs than the rest of the same batch. How about the last one ?

    I agree, I think they are pullets. The tail feathers in the first pic arent big enough.

    That is NOT a Millle Fleur, it is a Buff Brahma Bantam, guaranteed. Oh and its a pullet, they are different looking than cockerels.

    I think you are right, looks like there are sickle feathers coming in on the first 2....
    and I agree, that looks like a buff brahma, but the comb looks to red for a pullet at 6 weeks...
