Okay. I think I've been reading too many BYC gender threads, because I'm now seeing roo-ish characteristics in all three of my new chickens - all bought as pullets. One is kinda big, one is kinda grouchy, one hasn't got the right sort of feathers . . . anyway, I thought I'd better ask the experts before I go totally bananas! These are 11/12 week hatchery SLWs, who arrived a week ago with a bunch of feathers missing. (I treated for mites, added DE to the coop sand, and am feeding extra protein and BOSS to help feathers regrow. They're coming in like gangbusters!) All combs are shades of pinky/salmon, and wattles are all weeny and the color of a plastic Barbie doll.
