    I have 2 Red packing peanuts from a small ideal order. They are only 2 1/2 weeks old, they look absolutely identical in all aspects except one...one is more than twice the size of the other. i don't have my cam for pics, and there really isn't anything else to see yet anyway, tiny yellow combs at this age, no waddles (wattles?) my question is; is it possible that one of the free packing peanuts is actually a pullet? Would I be seeing a size discrepancy at this age in RIRs? They seem to be feathering the same, and looking the same, the size is the only difference

    If one is a pullet are you going to keep it? [​IMG]

    Actually, it's a moot point....my 2 little roos were taken today. That's 11 roos i've successfully rehomed (yay)
