    Hello All, I am in Toms River, NJ. I just got 3 young chickens, 13 weeks old. I guess that they are called Pullets? They are Olive Eggers! So cute! [​IMG]

    I have lots of questions which I will post to the other forum categories. I have been lurking for a few weeks, and I do enjoy reading all the posts, and pictures.

    Thx,

    Ted and Nancy

    Hi Ted and Nancy. Welcome. If the young birds are female, then yes, they are pullets. If they are male, they are cockerels.
