    This is my 12 week old Delaware. I'd love to know if you all think this is a pullet or roo?

    I'm going to say pullet. I have a Delaware, and I think by that point you would see more comb if it were a roo.

    Her legs are very thick, and her face turned red before the others, but no really no comb. I was trying to figure if that is breed specific?

    can you post a picture of her tail? if the black on her tail is solid black it's a pullet, if the black is barred than it's a roo.
