Thanks very much! We think all of our flock is very pretty, but it's time to reduce it since we have 22 in a very small yard. One of the buff girls is the sweetest hen we have, she comes and jumps on our knee if we sit on the ground. I'm trying to learn how to tell gender, and I think I was confused thinking the longer tails were females.

I would say all are pullets. :) If they were boys, their comb and wattles would all be starting to enlarge and beginning to redden, if not already red at this stage.

I'm learning as well. A couple of my RIR are getting very red combs and one is getting bright yellow legs. This mean I have a couple Roos?
