I picked up 7 chicks today from a local feed store. Out of these, five were sold as pullets, two were straight run. I'm hoping the two SR chicks I picked out are also pullets...

Here are the two SR chicks:

Barred Rock - I thought this was a pullet at the store...but now I'm not so sure. Opinions???

Can't tell. When mine were about a month old I could tell the difference. Here is a pic of my RIR rooster when he was young.

Thanks, I'm sure I will have to wait a bit to find out for certain what I have.

I think pullet. From what I have eread the pullet chicks have a headspot with a regulat outline while the roo chicks have an irregular headspot. I think this is far froma certain science but at least it can give you some comfort.
