    isnt that the right time for them to leave the chicks ? Enola, he may have been drunk. I know he is a heavy drinker. He came back a second time early and sober and as i had told Tom what had happened before, he ran him off. [​IMG] I find it very funny because i am a big girl that can take care of herself and he is well, hes old and crippled but he dont know that. [​IMG]

    I thought it was older. Four weeks? My other broody stills covers her clutch at night.

    @twisted-acres-farm - did you notice it looking different when you received them? Did you receive the number you requested or was it perhaps an extra "packing peanut"? Were they shipped direct to you or did you pick them up from a retailer? Several ways a male could end up in the girls without it being an outright sexing error at the hatchery - especially given it's a sex link. Got a picture? How old are they? Not trying to step on your toes, but I have seen several folks misjudge a RSL as being male because they have so much more white marking than the other pullets in the bunch.

    I've spent my time wondering if one of my rsl's is a roo or not. Now I'm thinking not - just maybe a slightly different line. [​IMG]

    I mean side by side their bodies were looking different - one was of a slighter build

    My guess is those are production reds, not RSL. How old are they? No wattles, small comb - pullet.
