Yeah, bad sign. I always watch the comb the bigger and redder says roo but the chick's stance says pullet. Roos typically stand tall while pullets stand lower.

Here is a good example of what I'm talking about in regards to stance, you notice how big the legs are in the front chick too...that's definitely a roo.

Hi All. I need help. I ordered 4 pullets about 3 weeks ago, but the hatchery sent me 6. It looks like one is a male. I can't have nor do I want a rooster unfortunately. What do I do now? I want to give him away to a farm or something. Any suggestions? I live in Chicago. Thanks!
