    Hello! I'm a new chicken mom and am loving it so far. I've bought 2 batches, 8 total. We're starting slow. First 4 were straight run, and I was told I was purchasing Blue Orpingtons. I didn't know any better, was just excited to be getting babies. Turns out 3 are Silver Laced Wyandotte, and I believe all 3 are Roos. One was different in appearance (should have been a clue, they weren't sure what they were selling) but i picked it anyway. I'm glad I did, because I believe I have an Australorpe. Love this chick, so friendly!! Anyway, I'm wanting confirmation that it is an Austra and is it a pullet?? Please please please be a girl :). My other 4 are for sure pullets, 3 buffs and another Wyandotte. They are around 6 weeks old now.

    They are, obviously, too young to say for 100% but those are looking like pullets. [​IMG]
