    I know a pullet is a hen less than a year old.

    I know a chick is,.......... well, a chick.

    When does a chick become a Pullet?

    Would fuzzybuttedness (new word), or lack of, be an indicator?

    Has the National Association for the Advancement of Chicks and Pullets made a determination?

    As to chickens ,depends on the breed I guess...Mabey as soon as they start laying or point of lay...
