    Looks like you have an assortment of roosters with one (far right white) possibly being a pullet.

    Will you try again?

    I hope they are pullets ugh what a mess.

    I bought 15 EE chicks hoping to get at least 1/2 n 1/2 I ended up with 4 Pullets and the rest were ALL roos. Well unless this 3rd white one on the far right is a Pullet then I will have 5 ......wishful thinking !!! I sold a few of them this is what I have left, of what I thought were roos, and I made sure that the buyer was aware they was roos.
    I had to separate them cause these 2 white chicks here on the left are mean as hell, and they pluck the feathers out of all the rest of them.
    So the girls or what I know is girls with peach color combs at this exact age are in a separate pen away from the mean bullies.

    I agree the far right one looks like the only pullet. [​IMG]
