    I bought six pullets from a local lady on Craigslist at six weeks old. This was two weeks ago. She was a bit vague about what they were, she said she thought either RIR/production reds, barred rocks and silver laced wynadottes, all female. I'm thinking that's not quite right. Thoughts? I can get some more pics tomorrow...

    Non are barred rocks. The black and whites are SLW. The two red and white ones could be red sexlinks.

    Hmm and from that first pic it looks like you might have a few boys there. Sounds like she may have pulled a fast one on you. Well I hope not!

    yep no way those are anywhere close to six weeks old.. One in the middle looks like my EE did when it was a 3 week old chick. Also I see no barred rocks. possibly Buff Orpington and SLW and EE........

    Looks like you do have a few boys, I can see two pullets the two standing side by side at the back of the first pic the others I am not sure about [​IMG] sorry I can't help on the breeds they may be mixed.
