If they grow anything like mine did, she's large, heavy and beautiful feathers. Personality wise she's so docile. Do yours have feathered legs?
no feathers on any of the legs yet, im still not even sure if any/all are pullets or cockerel; they arent too heavy yet but are as large as our isa brown and lavender orpingtons which are 2 weeks older. does anyone think the bird i pictured is pullet? we’re hoping so for those pretty dark brown eggs...

If they do not have feathered legs now they won't have them later. My girls eggs are brown but not very dark. My Black Marans is darker

were fine with whatever we get obviously, so far we have 4 different breeds laying (3 are light brown, 1 is cream colored) so any different colors are just icing on the cake, again hope at least 3/4 are pullets

They hardly have any comb. I think you're safe to think pullets.
yes we feel that way now we’re very excited looking forward to the chocolate eggs like we said before especially as we ended up with more roosters then previously been looking for

Mine started laying at 20 weeks but they were April babies. I don't know if yours will lay or wait until Spring.

and I just checked their 16 weeks not 18 weeks. Otherwise yes we’re not necessarily expecting them to lay until spring so if they do Play any sooner than that then bonus
