    So I have 4 new additions to my family, a RIR, Delaware, americauna, and a barred rock. They are about 9-10 weeks (I think). They are all sweeties so I'm praying all hens since roosters aren't allowed in city limits. I know it's all an educated guess right now. Pictures aren't the best since I had to take them with my tablet if you need anything more let me know. Thanks so much for any help!

    They look like they are about 8 weeks old at most. All pullets.

    I agree - all pullets. Not sure where you got them from, but most tractor supply stores get all those breeds in already sexed female. It's a nice little bonus.

    Our local country store. Thanks again! Never thought about it, but it makes a lot of sense that they'd be already sexed. :-D but can never be too careful I also did buy a golden Wyandotte only to have it turned out to be a red Sex Link when I first started a home flock LOL

    Lol! Sometimes they mix them all together and if you're not sure what they look like when newborns....well....it happens! And sometimes the staff doesn't know much about chickens, so they'll just reach in and grab whatever.
