    Ok so heres my question.....2 weeks ago i brought home 4- 2 week old buff pullets, or so i thought. One of the chicks is aggressive, larger, red comb forming, and is starting to hop on the other chicks. So my problem is i have 6-3 year old hens already, i have never had a rooster and dont really want one. Should i wait it out and see what happens or find my lil boy and new home quick. Im afraid my big girls will not appreciate me bringing a boy in so late in the game.

    I would wait a little longer. I have been fooled by chicks that I thought looked like roosters and they turned out to be hens.

    I have a wanna-be rooster named "Shirley". She had me fooled for a few months, she was so bossy! Her comb developed first and she ended up being my first peep to lay an egg.
