    We just got our first batch of chicks and aren't sure if they're all pullets or not. The store had 22 chicks so we bought them all, we like to jump in head first...lol

    So, I'm not sure if some of our BR aren't Roo's, anyone wanna take a shot?

    We have 6 BRs , all 3-4 weeks old. We aren't sure how old they are as they had started to feather at the store. These are the ones willing to set still for the camera... any ideas?

    hi
    I have BR's, and the pullets tend to be darker with more of a muttled barrs like on yours. Those are pullets. Another indicator of a cockerel, they grow faster then the pullets.
    good luck with your new babies

    They look like pullets to me.

    Thanks all, I wasn't sure cause some of their combs are starting to get pink. Seems like maybe I got all 22 pullets. I figured one of them woulda been a Roo.
