    Here are some pictures of my BR pullets. There is one which seems to have a lot more white, but the dark parts are just as dark as the rest. She just looks a bit different, but I do suspect that she hatched a day before the others. Is it possible that she is a he? I hope not, but figured I'd ask just in case.

    The front one is the chick in question.

    All of them together. The front one is the one in question.

    They would not sit still for the picture so I'm sorry if this is a waste of time due to these bad pictures.

    They will be 5 weeks tomorrow. The pictures do suck. Sorry about that. It was hard battling the dog who wanted his picture taken and trying to keep the chickens still.

    When I got them in, there was always one that seemed a little more advanced/bigger than the others. I had suspected then that one had hatched a day before the others. They were ordered from Idealpoultry. They are supposed to be all females.

    If not, I guess there will be a meal had in one of them.

    I'm fairly certain it's a girl! [​IMG] My BR pullets looked like that at that age. A male would be MUCH lighter!

    Edited to change a silly mistake!
