O. K. This may seem like a question that's been asked over & over again but I guess I just need to ask it!!.

I bought 15 pullets (well that's what they sold them as) and believe it or not I'm actually pretty sure they all are. I've read all the post and checked out all the pics and I'm pretty sure but here's a close up of 2 of them. They all look like this!! I forgot to add they were 4 1/2 weeks old....

So, do you think their pullets???

Thanks,
Missi

I agree that the one to the left, in your picture, looks like he/she might have a little extra comb development, possibly indicating a roo.

Here are a couple pics of my barred rock pullets at 5 weeks for comparison.

Sorry if they're a little fuzzy.

Maybe the one on the left is a roo. Mine are just half barred rock chicks (other half is "mutt") so maybe they develop combs at a different rate, but here's a photo of them at 4 weeks for comparison. Hope it helps. You can see the three in a row (heading for the watermelon) are probably roos.
