In the Brooder
- Apr 19, 2015
We have 22 chicks, 17 of which we mail ordered and they were part of a "Brown Egg Laying Hatchery Choice Assortment" and supposed to be all pullets...but they are 6 weeks old now and I've noticed several of them have more prominent combs- bigger & redder, even within the different breeds. Is it possible that they develop at different paces, or am I probably looking at several roosters? I don't WANT roosters, and paid for sexed chicks- I realize there's a margin of error when sexing them, but this seems to be too big of a margin! There are at least 5/17 that I am suspicious of...
