Hi all! I just got my RIR pullets from the local feed store. i had ordered 12 and asked for them to be in the April 1 order and they called me today to tell me my chicks were in!!! AHHH i was not ready. I was out shopping with my mom so she bought me a 2X2X4' metal watering tub like they use in the ranch supply stores when they sell chicks to put all the chicks in. On top of getting the chicks early they sent 6 extras at no charge and they gave them to me.. Now I have 18 RIR pullets running around! They are so cute though. I noticed on some there is almost a black chip monk type stripe on a couple. Is that common? I see 2 or 3 have well define stripes. Could they be roos then?
