Pullet or Cockerel?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a month old chick that has a bigger wattle than all the other chicks I hatched with it.  I need help figuring out if it is a pullet or a cockerel!

I think it looks like a pullet, but I could be wrong. I'm new at this too. smile.png

Happy wife, mother to 3 wonderful kids, 2 cats, 1 dog and 28 chickens...that were originally supposed to be 8. Not sure how that happened, but we love them all!

I have 5 others that are the same age but they all have small, non-red combs

They are most likely pullets then and this one is a handsome little cockerel.
