    I purchased these about three days ago. 4 barred rock and 1 buff Orpington. I was told they were all hens/pullets. Any optinions? I was told they were 3 weeks old.

    I think its too early to tell their gender.

    Do you have a bigger "room" for them?

    I purchased them locally in Suffokj, Va. Was told they were from a Hatchery.

    Yes, they've been upgraded to a larger area. These pictures are from the first night with them. I'm waiting a few more weeks before moving them to the coop.

    Great!
    Everyone does thing differently ..I understand and get that, but I was a little worried that "room" was too small for them.

    If they were sexed at a hatchery they're probably correct. Out of 55 hatchery sexed pullets that I can account for, only 3 were missexed. Not a bad average at all.

    By 5-6 weeks increased size and color of combs and wattles should tell the tale on any males.

    also helps if they are not photographed in bunches. Best to have individual photos.
