    How reliable is that? I got 6 chicks. What are the chances of having 6 hens? lol I'll probably post comb pictures tomorrow.... The 3 Reds and the Golden all have really really light yellowish combs, but the Turken and the Delaware's aren't as light.

    Yes, I'm sure it said Pullets. The bin to the right was the straight run, and the bantams were to the left.

    Here's some crappy pics. They are both around 8 weeks old. I bought them *exactly* 8 weeks ago.

    My Delaware...I think. I am pretty sure it's a hen, from the markings, but I'm not experienced. At all.

    x2 and if the public can handle the chicks expect them to get put in the wrong bin sometimes, thus mixing them up

    At TSC usually an employee handles the chicks when they box them. Keeps kids' germy hands out of the bins as well as preventing mixups.

    Wait and see a bit longer on that Turken. No roo card yet. The others look like girls.

    Pullet sexing should be ~90% accurate so there's 10% chance of boys amongst TSC pullets.

    Delawares are notoriously hard to sex... If the chick is 8 weeks old....it is looking rooish. This is a pic of my 4 delaware girls when they were 7 to 8 weeks of age.
