    Just curious to see how many boys I ended up with. I ordered two, suspicious there might only be one.... or three? They were hatched 10/25/15 :)

    Most of the girls are looking like this;

    Then I have these three;

    #1 - 99% sure this one is indeed a rooster.

    #2 Not sure on this one;

    1, 2, and 3 are all male. Pullets don't start to turn red in the combs until after about 14 weeks old. Those combs are pretty red for birds that are only about 12 weeks old.
