    Hi,
    I posted picks of these chicks awhile back but was told I should post again when they're a bit older. Now they're about 9 weeks old and I am hoping all pullets (cross my fingers, knock on wood, etc). I ended up with one Cochin roo who I am trying to find a home for (breaking my heart) so hoping all of these are girls and can stay with me! What do you guys think? They are one each of hatchery-quality RIR, Australorp and Barred Rock. Tried to take a pic of a couple of their tails too, if that helps.
    Thanks All!

    I hate to guess, but I have a 10 week old Barred Rock that looks exactly like yours and I'm hoping its a pullet. I also have 2 more the same age, one has hardly any comb and no wattles and what's there is yellowish I think is a girl, and the other has a giant comb and wattles which I'm sure is a boy, but the one I'm not sure of is kind of in the middle like the one you posted, a little pink comb but not too big or red.

    Thanks! Would they normally have them by now if they were boys? Or do they sometimes come in later?

    no those feathers don't come in for a few more weeks, around 13-15 weeks of age.

    they all look like pullets
