    [​IMG]I bought these pullets about 5 weeks ago. They are probably about 6 weeks old. The one has much longer tail feathers then the others. I do not want any roo's but am afraid this one is. I'm sure it is to early to tell but what do y'all think

    Post a picture please. Pullets tend to develop tail feathers faster than cockerels

    Photo didn't upload..

    Ignoring the mutt in the middle.. The bird on the left is pullet pattern. Bird on right is cockerel pattern.

    It's hard to tell from the photo - barring looks odd on it (sure it isn't cuckoo? maybe just the photo.) Added photos of older birds for reference: Pullet above, Cockerel Below..

    Better photo, thanks.

    Pullets, albeit a little messy barring.
