    The very last one kind of looks like a pullet, but I guess I will base that on their age. How old are they? [​IMG]

    Oh goodness, this is gonna sound crazy, but honestly they all look like pullets.. they have pale rose combs that are just starting to pink up as well as a nice straight tail with rounded tips, and no saddle feathers. I say they are all pullets!! All of them have that hen look, none shouting roo. I really hope I am right, I guess only time will tell! It'd be nice if you got back to me in a few months to let me know how they turned out.

    Good luck with your gorgeous flock!![​IMG]

    In that case, I also think they're pullets! [​IMG] I was looking at a picture of my BLRW girl at that age, and she was very similar to your stunning babies.

    You're a lucky ducky, they all appear to be the same sex :)
