    I think I wound up with one of each...

    Roo? Chubby:

    Pullet? Marigold:

    The differences in their body shapes/feather shapes have been pretty distinct for about 3 weeks now, but since I got the from the pullet bin (yeah...I know...) I dismissed it.

    Am I wrong? 2 girls?

    If Chubby is a rooster...I'm going to be beyond sad.....3 of the 4 we got were roosters. [​IMG]

    oh they are 11 weeks

    I see why you think she has a masculine bulkiness to her but she is a girl.

    Really? I've looked at pictures of saddle feathers and I see such a distinct difference between these two. Marigold is soft and fluffy all her tail end feathers fluff out and she is rounder looking. Chubby seems sleek....and it would appear as though he has the beginnings of pointy saddle feathers.

    I'd love for them to be pullets. We just got confirmation that our other (slightly older) 'pullet' is a roo...and it was the tail feathers that made me think twice.

    Any other guessers?

    Those are both beautiful girls. Hens can develop feathers at different rates and the second one is just behind a bit. [​IMG]
