    Here are some updated pics of my chickens from yesterday, I shot more of the saddle feathers, roos? I got them from a local feed store, it's the last time I do so, will order from a hatchery this spring. Out of 9 pullets, I have 9 roos!!!



    So is the consensus all Roos? I need to know to decide to get rid of all of them or not, any one have issues with EEs? That is what I am looking at getting. Thanks for all your help, you all are great!

    Wow. Bad luck or someone pulled a fast one on you. They are handsome boys, but definitely boys. No pullets there.

    If you want pullets with no doubt as to the sex I recommend a sexlink variety. Awesome layers and very well behaved, you can ID the gender at a glance! I have BSL's but there are many varieties and colors. ISA Browns, Golden Comets, Red Sex Links, etc.

    PS: them chickens are gonna CROW! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have not seen a pullet in any picture you have posted, today or yesterday. Sounds like you need to have a big family BBQ.
