    Hello again.
    We got these barred rocks today. They are supposed to be all pullets this time. Do they look like it to you. Geez I hope so after the last fiasco. The guy said they are 15 weeks, but they sure look younger to me. I am no expert of course. They are much smaller than our barred rock rooster and he is about 15 weeks. Let me know what you think if you can.
    Thanks [​IMG]

    They look nice and healthy, congrats. I'm not a barred rock person but if I remember correctly, the females are darker then the males. They look like pullets to me.

    Thanks, I sure hope they are pullets. I got them from a breeder this time [​IMG] They just look so much smaller than my big bruiser of a roo [​IMG]

    Roosters tend to be a little bigger than pullets, they might just be a tad bit younger. And yes they all seem to be pullets.

    Thanks so much everyone [​IMG] I am happy with them. One of them seems like a little ninja. She can jump, run up walls, etc [​IMG] They are funny.
    Thanks for all the help. Now maybe things will settle down here, or not [​IMG]

    They look just like mine (and I got a rooster too, UNexpectedly...I hope he's nice) and mine are 10, 11 weeks at most.
    They are beautiful!

    I do wonder how old these are. Our BR rooster is very sweet actually. I will have to post a pic of him now. He is HUGE. Maybe tomorrow I can get a good pic of him. His wings are a little ruffed up from being with the other 2 roosters. The other 2 roos and the 2 hens they like are going to a neighbors tomorrow. He raises JG so they will be ok. So I guess I will just have the BR roo and 3 hens, for now [​IMG]
