I've been looking and looking for pullets - I realized that my main egg layers were 2 years old, and I was shocked. How have I lost track of time? (No wonder I wasn't getting very many eggs!) So I was eagerly scanning craigslist for pullets or laying hens -- younger than a year -- breed didn't matter. My search was successful last week, and I found 12 pullets at an immaculate old farm in farming country with a very nice gentleman who caught all of the little things with a butterfly net (I need to get one of those). I paid his ridiculously low price ($5 / pullet) and left, thinking, aha - now I have 9 barred rocks and 3 Easter Eggers -- maybe I'll keep my unexpected barred rock roo that I got earlier in the year and hatch out some more chicks next year. Barred rocks are nice sturdy chickens -- not exciting, but they lay eggs . . . and so on. After observing the pullets in their moveable temporary coop . . . I was puzzled . . . Seven of the pullets were greyish, had light grey/white legs, and indistinct barring. Maybe they were younger and haven't developed? They didn't LOOk sick or act sick . . . After researching, I thought -- did I get Cuckoo Marans by accident? What do you think? And here's another view: So, I thought, I still have 2 barred rocks. Not bad . . . with the rooster and my older pullet, that gives me 4 . . . when I examined my barred rock pullets again. One looked fine -- yellow legs, nice barring, nice shape -- but the other had a rose comb. What was going on? And of course, I forgot to get a picture of the barred rock rose comb pullet, but here's one of her sister with the normal comb, plus the other two kinds of pullets in the batch. IS there a barred chicken that has a rose comb, or is this a mix? I don't care either way -- they both look like pullets to me, and that is what I bought them for - but it surprised me! I will have to track her down for a personal undivided photo shoot. And finally, these beautiful brown and yellow pullets (or is one a roo - bother -- what am I going to do with him . . .) he said were Easter Egg chickens which was fine, but I'm thinking that they really are not, now that I've watched them awhile. I do have Easter Eggers with this coloring, but not with straight combs and yellow legs, and the pullets seem lighter than the EE's to me - but that could be just because they are young . . . They look more like Brown Leghorns to me. So what do you think? I like all the pullets no matter what they are (although I will be impressed with the deal even more if I ended up with Maran's - even production ones) since I got them to lay eggs and I'm 99% sure that all but one of the brown chickens is a pullet. The gentleman was really nice, and clearly not overly into the minutia of chickens . . . Thanks for helping!
