    Hi! I hatched out a few OE'ers on May 21st, and this one is keeping me guessing. The breeder says it's a pullet, but I'm not so sure. It has Roo'ish posture, so here I am asking for opinions from you all. I really hope it's a pullet like it's sister, but we all know how that goes! Oh, and just over the past week, it has grown bronze feathers on it's neck. He/she is really beautiful, I think!

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm leaning toward male, but honestly I'm not positive.

    I'd have to agree with OP, it looks like a male!

    At about 10/11 weeks old, it's a rooster.

    Thanks y'all! That's what I figured. I won't get to keep him if he is indeed a roo. If only I had a big farm.... :)

    I agree with the others. It's a rooster.
