    both pullets. Expect eggs soon if not already, that is why their combs are so red.

    Oooooh I hope you are right!!! I bought 8 chicks and so far for sure 5 are roosters (I know for sure because they are all crowing now!) - ugh! I am working on Rehoming all but one and I would love to have this one be a layer. 3 out of 8 - only - But on the bright side it will be better than 2 out of 8.[​IMG]
