    Hello. I am brand new to raising chickens. I found this forum while trying to sex my two Barred Rock chicks.

    I'm pretty sure they're both pullets, but I'm a little paranoid. I REALLY don't want to harvest any yet, especially the BR's. For whatever reason, I feel more attached to them than to the others. I was going to start a thread in another section.

    If someone asked me if these are pullets, I'd say, "Duh!" But the one on the left has thick white wing tips and the dark splash on her leg only goes to her ankles. Here are the feet of the left chick:

    ... and the feet of the right chick:

    The first pic was taken they day we got them. The other two I took this morning. I'll post better pics when I can take them. I like the threads that show progress so that's what I think I'll do. These chicks we purchased at a feed store Wednesday. They were about a day old. We have 5 others (2 Buff Orpingtons, 1 Speckled Sussex, 1 Easter Egger (Ameraucana?), and 1 Welsummer). My wife wanted variety.
