    I have 3 RIR's that are about 9 weeks old. Can you tell me if there are any pullets among them?

    I have put off naming them until I know if any of them are girls since I will not be keeping the boys.

    ArizonaDesertChick -

    So my BR is a female? I would be thrilled if it was a girl. Out of 5 chicks so far 3 are roosters.

    I have another BR I got with these same chicks and that one looks a lot different.

    Would it help to get a picture of both of the BR together?

    Yes, it would help to show both barred rocks together and include a picture of the mystery chick's legs. The wattles on the mystery chick do look a bit large for a female, but they're still smaller than the RIRs - I was judging your BPR by the color - typically male BPRs are much lighter. They also don't usually have the darker wash going down their front legs (legs will be solid yellow). At 9 weeks, your 2nd chick is definitely a pullet, so showing the 2 of them together to see coloring and legs will help.

    Here's a pic of 2 of my pullets when they were only 6-7 weeks of age:

    And an 11 week old Partridge Plymouth Rock pullet:

    edited to say the PPR is a pullet
