    Today when i was restocking the pullets feed, I noticed on one of the RIRs curled tail feathers...


    Not curled as in curly que but like a roosters tail. Er how do i explain....

    You know how roos have a few curled in feathers on their usually straight tail? Like that.

    Is it normal for a 8 week old RIR pullet to have one or two of those?

    I hope so... [​IMG]

    I would think that by 8 weeks you would be able to tell by the comb whether it's a pullet or roo. Are you able to post some pics?
