BSL pullet? Thoughts?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So this chick is 4 1/2 to 5 weeks old and was purchased as a BSL pullet from a reputable feed store from a bin with other BSL chicks, there was no white spot on her head to indicate a rooster.  She has a lot of her feathers in now, and she is starting to show that brown feather pattern on her chest and neck that I see a lot of BSL hens have.  I also had an EE hen who had a very similar color pattern and I know BSK roos are barred.  The only thing that is giving me hesitation is her comb, which is a larger and pinker than her two flockmates who were purchased on the same day.  They are all about the same size, but her gold sex link counterpart has a much paler comb.  Here she is:

 

 

 

 

 

She doesn't have any dominant roo-ish personality traits yet but you can really see the color of the comb in these pictures.  What do you think?

Sure looks like a rooster, could be a different breed than you thought.

Any other thoughts? Would need to rehome as soon as possible if she is a he - which I hate to do honestly - but it's against my municipal code which is why I went with the BSL's in the first place.:hit

IF "she" is a BSL, with that coloring she'd have to be a she...
