    Please can someone tell me if Rosa (red band) and Bella (blue band) are really pullets? Neither is crowing but neither is laying either. Thanks so much[​IMG]

    They look girly and too young to lay. How old are they?

    Thanks so much. I forgot to say they are about 24 weeks. Should they be laying soon - they still look quite young. Thank you.

    You have 2 beautiful hens, you would be able to tell that your RIR was a roo alot soon then that! I could tell mine was by 5-6 weeks old...plus they start getting black in the tail feathers. I hope they lay real soon for you!
