    So I got 6 chick's April 25th, they were all supposed to be pullets. We had one die yesterday and we have no idea why. It looked just like the other 2 darker ones. I guess my question is do I have roos or pullets?

    Welcome to BYC!

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss.[​IMG]

    As far as determining gender, posting pics of your birds once they are about 5 or more weeks old, will help us sex them.

    I'm sorry to say this but you have at least two cockerels there.[​IMG] Where did you buy them from? It's very rare to buy sexed chicks and have more than one of them turn out to be a cockerel.

    I got them at our local Tractor Supply store. They were advertised as "pullets" even cost more. Do you think they are all barred rock?

    Thank you. I also have 4 buff orpingtons and 2 sex links. They are all supposed to be pullets but they are only 2 and 3 weeks old. I got them at a different place.
