    I just had a broody hatch successfully hatch three eggs yesterday.


    They all seem to be children of one of the two Barred Rock hens I have. Their father is the only rooster I have, an Easter Egger.


    How can I figure out if I have pullets or roos?

    I think you will have to wait and see when they get a little older

    If you closely watch their wing and tail feather development over the course of the next couple of weeks, you may be able to notice different patterns.

    I'm no expert, especially not when it comes to those breeds, but there are different patterns, and if you study them carefully, you may be able to start seeing notable differences.
