    Hello, my first little flock of chicks are now 6 weeks old I I think one or two may be roos instead of pullets. I am pretty sure he buff orpington, the white rock and the australorp are pullets, but I am not so sure about the wyandotte and the barred rock. I would appreciate it if some one could help. Also I want to get a few more chicks. Would it be better to get them now so they are closer in age or wait until spring. Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the reply. I really hope you are right. I really want them to all be pullets.

    Jake do you think the bar and the wyandotte are roos? They do seem to be getting waddles while the others have not started to yet.
