Same sad song I've read on so many posts...our six girls are now four weeks old. I know it is early to tell, but the eight-year-old, my partner, and I will have to gear ourselves up. No Roos in our city, and we agreed when we went into this that, although we were happy to run an old hen's home, we would take responsibility for any accidental Roos. Here are the two that concern me: Barred Rock. I like her dark legs and color, and her little comb is nice and yellow, but is that a lot of comb for a four week old pullet? Big Girl is the biggest chick by far, and she just popped out that reddish orange on her neck, chest, and wings. No comb to speak of yet. Thoughts? Either way, these chickens will have a lovely life until it comes time for us to pay the piper.
