    Maybe one of you fine people can help me. I picked these sweethearts up at the TSC in Bosque, NM (near Albuquerque) from the "assorted red" bin. I was pretty sure these little pullets were Rhode Island Reds but now that they're feathering out I'm not so sure. They're awefully brown to be RIRs. Do one of you guys know?

    Edited To Add: They'll be three weeks old tomorrow and are supposed to be all girls. They're awfully small for 3 weeks (we had them for two, the sales girl said they were a week old when we got them). I'll weigh one of them when I get home tomorrow. :)
