    These are from Ideal via our local Feed Store and they're supposed to be little girls, but since I'm so new to chickens I'm kinda concerned. They're about 5 weeks old.

    And Miss Kitty (sold as a RIR, but if "she" is something else, please tell me):

    I hope they're both girls, but they're home even if they're not. [​IMG]

    On the RIR, does it have a Single Comb or a Rose Comb?
    If it has a single comb and it is that small then I would say hen..

    I am glad you posted this because I have a 7-week-old Australorp from TSC straight-run bin that looks just like yours. I'm hoping for a pullet also!!

    Quote:It's a single comb, and it's more of a yellow than a pink so I think it's safe to keep the name "Miss Kitty" for this one. Phew. [​IMG]



    And NC Chicken Lover ... I had SUCH a hard time finding pictures of young Australorps, but I see that there's now another thread in this section with pictures of a couple young roos, which helped me feel a lot better about mine being a pullet:
