    These chicks are 13 weeks old and I'm still confused as to whether they are cockerals or pullets?!

    I'm pretty sure the one with the fire-ry neck feathers is a roo but sometimes I think???? maybe not?

    Their mothers were brown shavers and an unknown father.

    Any insight appreciated.
    Thanks

    They could be Black Stars or BSLs. They are pullets.
