    Hi all!

    I have 3 chicks that are 11 days old today: A Rhode Island Red, a Cuckoo Maran and a Speckled Sussex. The Rhode Island Red is noticeably bigger than the others and the Cuckoo Maran has zero tail feathers so far. And I'm just curious if everyone agrees they're all pullets? I can't have roosters in my area, and I'm so scared at least one of them will end up crowing!

    It's also difficult because I only have one of each breed and have nothing to compare them to!

    All 3 together. Is it strange that the RIR and Speckled Sussex are feathering nicely and the Cuckoo Maran doesn't have even 1 tail feather??

    My RIR. Pullet?

    Thanks for any and all input!

    My Speckled Sussex pullet got her tail feathers long before the roo. I just double checked the pictures. Not sure if that's typical though. My roo's comb came in really early. I know nothing of the other breeds... Fingers crossed for you.
