    I got these two pullets/roos from a friend and they were supposed to be Americaunas (according to the feed store) but obviously they aren't. Can somebody please tell me what breed they are and if they are pullets or roos? They are about 2 months old.

    You guys don't think they are Roos? They are huge compared to my other pullets that age. I hope they are pullets......cross your fingers:)

    Some type of sex-link pullet--cinnamon queen, red star, etc. They're egg laying machines and usually great backyard birds, docile and not very broody.

    Red Stars/Sexlinks. Definitely pullets. No roosters there at all. [​IMG]

    How can you tell that they are pullets? Are they normally a larger bird? Thanks for all the help.

    Because the roos are white. That is the good thing about sex-links, you can tell the boys from the girls at hatching. The red/golden with white are pullets. [​IMG]
