    I have 6 black australorp at tsc they are suppose to be pullets but last night I noticed some of them play fighting. Is this a sign I have roos. They are a little over two weeks old.[​IMG]

    They are about a week older then the other babies.

    Yes, some pullets will be bossy and fight, almost everyone has one that does it.

    All chickens work out a pecking order, so there will be scuffles between pullets and between cockerels.

    Thanks to both of you. I was afraid I had several roos when I bought pullets. I'm happy theirs still hope.
