    Hi everybody ! New to BYC but not to chickens. I now have eight 10 week old chicks. 4 barred plymouth rocks and 4 rhode island reds. they were all pullets but now 3 of them have turned into roosters. So I guess we will be having nuggets before to long as we are not allowed roosters in town.

    Yes, it's the old stealth rooster trick. They pass for pullets as long as possible hoping you will like them so much, you won't dump them once their true identify comes out. Always fails.
