    Girls, their combs turning red means they are maturing and should by laying soon.

    Thank you! [​IMG] Do you think they all are girls? I have 5 total. I have 2 BO's, 1 black barred rock, 1 white plymouth rock, and 1 golden comet. This is my first post and I didn't caption my pics like I wanted. All 5 are photgraphed here. Hatched on the same day, almost 17 weeks old. Am I so lucky to have all pullets from a straight run from the feed store?

    All your birds are pullets, not a single one is ambiguous. I'd be expecting eggs within a month from a few of those girls.

    You got lucky--I agree that all are pullets! You could see eggs anytime in the next 1-4 weeks.
