    I was given 3 backyard-bred pullets, they thought that they might be Marans/EE crosses, but really weren't sure...well after a few weeks, one was definitely a roo, and he went to his personal harem at my friend's house. Now I'm having serious doubts about the other 2. I think that they are around 12-14 weeks old, but really don't know. (I've had them 4 weeks)

    Currently they are named Petunia and Lilly, but perhaps they should be Pete and Larry? I'm a rank newbie and need some experienced eyes on these two[​IMG] so any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    Petunia looks like a Pete to me. Not sure about the other one.

    They resemble barred rock/ameraucana cockrels.

    Successfully relocated "Pete and Larry" to my friend who needs roosters as alarms for her diverse chicken/duck/geese flock. Thanks to everyone who helped me with this decision!
