    A while back I posted chick pics and I'm wondering if my two pullets are still pullets.
    They are 18 weeks old, I'm seeing wattles and comb changes and am hoping they are just maturing girls and not boys.
    No cockerels are allowed in the city...
    One of the two has a dry-looking, pale comb, I'm wondering if that is normal. Also, do pullet legs get pinkish when they are excited like their faces do?
    Thanks in advance, sorry some of the pics are less than perfect. [​IMG]

    Looks like two girls to me. Combs and face will redden up right before they are mature enough to lay eggs.

    I'm not familiar with BRs but if they were roos I would think you would have heard something by now. You should be almost ready to get some eggs from those two if their combs are getting red. My white leghorn pullet just started getting her comb larger too and redder. I am so looking forward to my 1st homegrown egg! Enjoy your pullets!
