    All were supposed to be pullets but this one is so much bigger than the rest and they are all 8 weeks old. Legs are much thicker too.

    Here are some pics of my girls/guys????

    Quote:#5 looks just like my BRs did at that age and they are all girls--they give me an egg a day.

    Ya that's what I was thinking but I couldn't remember if BR roosters had the thinner barred lines and the pullets had the thicker lines, or the other way around. [​IMG]

    Well if the first two are roo's then I am going to have to rehome them and my flock goes down to 7. Allowed pullets but not roo's. Noise issue I guess. I will hate to loose either of them they are so pretty. Especially the Partridge Plymouth Rock in pic 2.

    Holy CRAP! I just went to your BYC page! You really got all those predators in just one day of trapping? Your coop should be lead lined with some sort of metaphasic shielding (for all you Star Trek fans). [​IMG]
