Cockerel or Pullet?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

5 week old Easter Egger, can't decide if it is a pullet or cockerel. Its saddle feathers are starting to curve but its comb is almost non existent.

It's early, and I see nothing that suggests 'male'.

Keep on eye on her comb, if it starts to redden and enlarge - could be a cockerel

Leaning towards pullet.. wait it out to about 6-8 weeks old to share another picture just so you can be 100% certain you have a pullet.
