    I'm questioning my luck, how well this hatchery sexes, and what the feed store "really" ordered. I was pretty sure 1 was a boy but now I'm thiking both are. That would be my luck, I buy 2 that are suppose to be sexed pullets and they both turn out to be boys. What are the odds?

    What do you think? About 8 weeks old.

    I have 3 GLWs.....from the pics I would say they are pullets. One of my 3 GLWs was a bit more developed in combs and wattles than her sisters of the same age, looked like yours at that age. She still has bigger wattles and comb than the two others but they are all the same size/age.... Hope someone with more knowledge chimes in [​IMG]

    Thanks! I certainly HOPE they are both girls! I have some SLW that are all suppose to be pullets that are develiping similar to these, very red in the comb. Yet my BLRW (which were st run) aren't red in the comb at all. I was hoping for at lest 1 boy out of any of them but I'll be just as happy if they are all girls! Plenty of nice roosters out there looking for a home and girlfriends!
