At the end of February when we ordered our cornish rock broilers from Ideal we also recieved a bunch of golden laced cochins as packing peanuts. There are 5 of them. For some time I have suspected that one of them might be a pullet. They are now 15 weeks old and are living with my parents on their ranch. Mom has started to suspect the same thing. This dear little bird is smaller than the other cockerls and is at the bottom of the pecking order. He/she knows what to do with grubs and tomatoes worms (that we put in their coop) while the others just kinda stare at them like "what in the world is this". He/she gets right in there and snatches it and runs off, and only then do the others say "hey we might be missing out on something...better give chase." This chick is less colorful than the others but has a respectable comb and wattles. I was just wondering if someone could post a picture of one of these hens so I could compare. I looked at the one on Feathersite and I can't tell if they are just like my birds. We had the hardest time figuring out what they were and finally decided they were gold laced. What I don't know is how fast this breed develops. If "she" were the only pullet, I don't think it would go well for her. Since these birds are 15 weeks old, should we be looking for "her" to lay in about 3-4 wekks (ie. 18weeks old) if "she" is a pullet?
