    My new little flock of 11 were suppose to be all pullets, but I think my 2 (ahum) "New Hampshires" might be roos. =0(

    Hatched the first week of Feb., they seem just a tad bit larger than the others. I've heard NH mature fast, so I'm confused.

    At this point, I'm not ever sure of the breed.lol. Any help would be appreciated![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Is this both of them or just one? Looks like the same chicken to me. Anyway, looks like pullet.

    I haven't been too good at this lately, but she looks like a pullet to me.

    So they are at least 4 months old then, yes? I'd say pullet all the way. A cockerel should have an impressive comb by now and be crowing to beat the band.

    Thank you! I've grown attached to these gals already, I would have hated to give them the boot. =0)
