They came from rural King and allegedly 10 are pulkets, the black copper maran was the only one from a straight run and she is approx 5-6 weeks old!! I also posted pictures of my blue andalusians and white leghorn.. mostly because I know that the chances of them not all being pullets is pretty good! Thank you in advance :)

    They are a bit young, but I don't see any obvious boys currently.

    Thank you! They are literally my children LOL even though I have 6 kids already

    According to a chart I'm going by, the Leghorn and Moran should be at least 6 weeks, the and illusions are probably about 5... Does that seem accurate to you? This is my first time with chicks so I'm learning as I go :)

    They are really sweet and you have a nice set up. I would wait a couple more weeks and then post individual pictures showing combs and the side of their faces. You will notice the boys get larger combs with more of a red colour and usually develop a "cocky" pushy attitude.
