    The chicks are 5-1/2 weeks old today. I ordered and paid for pullets and picked them up myself at the hatchery (but I DON'T THINK they are all pullets....). Please take a close look and give your best advice. THANKS SO MUCH!!

    I don't have orps so I could certainly be wrong since I have nothing to compare to but... they all look like roos to me.

    I sense you may want to call the hatchery and ask what their policy is on sexed birds, cause it looks like you have all boys at that age. :eek: Pullets will very little comb, with no color at 5 weeks. Unless they are some really fast maturing girls. [​IMG]
