    Can you tell me if this white 6wk old chicken is a he or she. I have a gut feeling it is a he, but would like your opinion. Also the other pics are my new babies.
    I ordered 9 pullets. Does it look like all pullets to you?

  2. It's awfully pretty. Big tail feathers but could go either way.

    So I have finally figured out the posting of pictures. Check that off my list today. Yah.

    This is my white chicken. Do you think, pullet or rooster.

    This is my new batch of babies. Should I be able to tell the difference between a fryer and a layer. The white chicks are twice the size. Is that normal?

  4. The big chicks are probally your broilers.

    So this chick is the last of 3 that we had. Something broke into the coop last week and got the other two. He was so scared. Poor baby. The other white chick we had, had even longer tail feathers, and a smaller comb. This one has shorter tail feathers and a little bit of a bigger comb.

    Sexing is such a hard thing.

    So I didn't order any broilers. I only wanted laying hens. Now what do I do. Should I call the feed mill?
