The before: I already have a full grown Golden Laced Wyandotte, a 15 week old Americauna (Easter Egger) Rooster and a.... ahem..... Duck. This entire project started on just a duck. My friend bought me a duck for my birthday. Pepper Duck looked lonely.... got him a friend... Dorothy Chicken (Wyandotte).... Si the Rooster (EE) came along as a "freebie" in need of a good home. (Im a sucker and he is pretty). The Middle.... I went to a local "breeder" (I use the term lightly because he didn't seem to have a clue as to what he was giving me) and walked away with 6 chicks for $15. He told me they were mixed up chicks and the Silkies were "pure." The Question: Im having doubts about believing they are all pullets. So Im reaching out as a first time chicken owner (YIKES) I supposedly have 2 "Barred Rock x Wyandotte(?)" (the two black with white spots) ........ 2 "Buff Orpington x Wyandotte(?)" (the two goldens) and I have two weeeee little silkies (one Black one blue/Gray) What i want to know is from the pictures what is the chances i have some Pullets? :/ Chick 1 Chick 1 appx 8 weeks old chick 2 chick 2 appx 8 weeks old chick 3 (it has really nicely developed tail feathers... i didnt realize i had not gotten them in the picture) appx 10 weeks old Chicks together My Poor Poor pathetic little "Sly".... it is/was literally 1/2 the size of the other silkies and it was being picked on..... I said I didnt care if it was a boy or girl that I wanted it (just so i could take it home and spoil it and not let this poor chick get bullied. I brought another from the same group home... but it is camera shy. Honestly i dont know why Sly is so small.... but I set up a special pen for it to be in near the others but tucked safely away separated by chicken wire. Sly Again.... and Again. Supposedly its 8 weeks old... i just dont see it. Please tell me if you think my luck of pullets is high or if Im going to be re-homing a bunch of roos this winter/early spring.
