    I got my girls two weeks ago today. I ordered 20 pullets and 3 roos. Ended up with 26 chicks. One died the first day, the rest have thrived. I ordered 5 brown leghorn pullets and 3 brown leghorn roos. I have 7 brown leghorns and 3 of them look suspiciously like roosters. They are the only 3 of the seven that their combs are growing. Wanted some expert opinions...[​IMG]

    I read that sometimes the girls develop more quickly than the boys. What do you all think???

    I think your assumptions of the gender are correct [​IMG]
