We have 7 buff braham chicks that are around 7-8 weeks old. I am new to chickens but have been learning alot from this site. I am trying to figure out what we have as far as pullets or roos. I have read on here about pullets growing tail feathers quicker and I know about the combs. Going by that theory I thought we had 5 pullets and 2 roos because of the tail feathers. Two of them didn't have a tail but the other 5 did. Now those two are getting their tail feathers but as far as a comb goes they all look the same. I don't know if I am missing something or what! Is there a sure fire way to tell? I will post some pics when I have enough posts. Thanks for any help!!
