    Thought this would be fun. This group was accidentally bought as all pullets so I had my fingers crossed for a Roo. Think I have atleast one but though I could put the pics up and get your thoughts as well. Then in a few months I can post to let you all know "Who is a Roo"!! These pics were taken of my Rhode island reds at 5 weeks. I named them according to the band color so Left leg Black is "Elbee" (L-B) Right leg black is "Arbee" and so on. Let me know which if any you think are Roos and thank you for your help!!

    If those are all supposed to be pullets, you need a refund!

    Yes they were bought as all pullets. My father ordered them and dint know that "pullet" ment female. They sent 16. Sposed to be 95% correct. I wanted some Roos and Im sure I see some. But still seems like there may be more than 95%?

    Double on the Yikes if that was supposed to be a pullet order, I count possible roos, 1,3,4,6,10,12 and a few more iffy.
