    I'm thinking I lucked out and got all hens. But I don't know, really. What do you think?
    I got them all at a feed store, no idea where they're from. Every time I go back for feed I intend to ask then forget. Doh.

    This is "Big girl." She's dominant and the biggest:

    Then New Girl (on the right). Almost as big as Big girl (left). She's slightly lighter color than the others but not as much as you'd think from this shot. I think she's the prettiest:

    Lastly, Crip (right) and, uh, I think the left one is (Un)Remarkable. They are the bottom two in pecking order and buddies. Also smaller. Crip has an excuse, she was injured pretty badly by a possum at about 3 weeks of age and has only recently quit limping. Remarkable is only a tiny bit bigger than Crip though. They aren't a lot smaller than the top two, but they are definitely not as big.

    4 sessions with the camera and those were the best I could get. Chickens sure do hate to pose! [​IMG]

    There's Three or four birds though, not two. I'm guessing you mean all pullets, whatever the number of birds then, right? WHeeee I hope so.

    I would agree that the 2 u have pictures of r pullets. But I would have to see pics of the others two, to tell u if they r cockerals or pullets. I dont know bout the breed, I have never had Sex-Link chicks before, or buff orphingtons, but that would b my 2 guesses on the breed, but Im not positive on that. [​IMG] But those 2 n the pic r defiently pullets [​IMG]

    I'm confused. Do you all see three pictures with comments? Everyone says there's two birds but there's 4: one in the top picture, same one but with another in the second, and two in the third picture. Are some of the pictures not showing?
