    Hello all! Newbie here and needing some help! We have 4 birds we got from a feed store in mid April. I believe they were about 2-3 weeks old at that time. So they should be around 16 weeks old now. I'm pretty sure I have more than one roo and live in the city where they are not allowed. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    All four are definitely pullets. One Barred Rock, one Buff Orpington, and two Production Reds.

    Thank you! I'd hate to have to get rid of one so I'm glad they are all pullets!

    All pullets.

    The red combs you're seeing are simply a sign of impending sexual maturity. means you'll have eggs incoming in a month or so [​IMG]

    need to agree with all nice little pullets... if they are 15 weeks your
    barred or reds could start to lay anytime now
