    I have 6 rhode island reds in the mix with my easter eggers. Can you tell if my rhode island reds are all hens?

    Official answer: it's too early to tell. Were they supposed to be pullets, or were they straight run? Unofficial answer: if they have the head marking, they are supposed to be pullets.

    So by the head marking you mean they have a black stripe on their heads. I not them from a feed store & they are to be pullets only
