I purchased these little ones about 3 weeks ago from a local feed store. They were at least a couple of weeks old then. Apparently the store hadn't had much success selling the chicks and I felt sorry for these due to the fact they were crammed in a tub meant to house chicks of just a few days old. They were both missing their back feathers due to pecking and needed a little TLC. Anyhow, I asked to make sure these were pullets and I was assured they were. However, their combs seem to be developing faster than my other hens. Not sure if it's a breed thing? Any insight would be super!
