    They're about 5-6 weeks old, and straight run. They look so different, one has more pronounced tail feathers...what do y'all think?

    (As usual, BYC site and app are both being annoying and not letting me do pictures in the post. I think. I'm hoping I can add them after I post it...)

    I think pullets, the first one isn't as developed (colorwise, etc) is she the same age?

    I believe the one on the right more fully feathered is a pullet 12834999_221630511523905_398761546_n.jpg 12910421_229800320706924_1356642952_n.jpg both(not very good) pics are pullets about that age.

    They are supposed to be the same age. Never know with feed stores sometimes. They were the same stage development when I bought them around a week old.
