    Hi all,

    About 2 months ago I got three "5 month old RIR fixing to lay". I'm afraid they may be roos. I have a smaller pullet who is always in the box, don't know if she is broody or laying the eggs. The reds look all the same and 1 crowes today. Please help!! 20181209_124953.jpg 20181209_124948.jpg 20181209_124942.jpg

    Cockerels one and all.
    Some people are horribly unscrupulous and take advantage of the inexperienced. So sorry you were duped.

    Yep, all cockerels. Sorry you weren't sold what you were told, that is a bummer.

    All birds pictured are cockerels. I’d be very upset with the person who gave you those “pullets”.

    Thank you all for the replies. So frustrating. Do now I have 4 roos (counting the one I already had) and only 1 hen. Guess I gotta find homes for them

    All look to be cockerels and I hope they weren't advertised as pullets.
