    I acquired 3 pullets(Buckeye, Barred Holland, & Black Austrlorp). I have no clue how old they are. Can Anyone help? Here is a pic of the first 2, I'll add one of the australorp soon as I get a good pic. If better pics would be helpful let me know. Thanks for the help.

    Nope, not six months, both are much younger. Closer to 14 weeks on the barred pullet and 16-18 weeks on the Buckeye, (possible production red bird?). Is that a rose comb on the Buckeye?

    I would guess close to 5 months. Faces are read but combs are small yet. Should be laying soon in my opinion.
