    I was supposed to have all pullets. I only have 3 chicks and my 2 RIR have tail feathers already and have more feathers in general. I'm getting a little worried that my DS's favorite chick is a roo! We can't have roos. Oh he would be so disappointed! lol! They are only 2 weeks old so I know it's difficult to tell so young. I just worry about incoporating just ONE chick into a little flock. We do'nt have room for more than 3 chickens right now.

    And here are my other 2 RIRs who are the same age

    They are pretty young...I have to say they look pullets at this age.

    Wait about a month, you would get your answer.
