Pullet

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

UPDATE! Okay one more week under our belts and I am becoming less convinced that this is a cockerel like I once thought. The tail feathers seem to be coming in even rounder and there are no alarming wattles developing. This chick is a little over 2.5 months old. What do you guys think?

It's too young yet for male feathering. Male specific feathering isn't really very visible until about 12 weeks or so. Until then, this one could be either male or female. Do you know what the parents were for sure?

I did not know that about the feathering!! They are actually right at 12 weeks now (hatched about July 13th)... I said 2 and half months meaning calendar months but I guess 12 weeks is more accurate smile.png I do NOT know what the parents were for sure.

Looks like a pullet to me. I would think male feathering would be showing since they'll be 12 weeks in a few days.

I'm going to say pullet, judging by the size of the comb and wattles. But I do see your problem here. For it's age, it does seem quite large, but that may be the Australorp coming through; they're a large breed and both the males and females can get quite big. Very nice bird by the looks of it too.

I really want aWhite  Sebastopol that is young and nearby! Our male died two days after we bought him. I would really want a female though because the Sebbie was to be a companion for my duck, and now we think it's a drake.
