Is this a pullet or cockerel?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We hatched chicks in Feb and so far I know 2 are boys.  Still trying to figure out if this is our only girl.  Could use advice!  We are in the process of trying to re-home the cockerels.  He/she is almost 9 weeks.  The 2 boys have massive combs and wattles that turned red very early.  I thought this was a pullet until her face started turning pink, but her comb is still small.  Momma is a white leghorn and we were told the Dad was an easter egger.  Looked a lot like a rhode island red to me, but I'm new at this!

Thanks!  I'm really hoping she's a pullet.  I've just been back and forth.
