    This 12 week old Sultan looks much more red around the face than the 11 week old Sultan I have. I can even see a little knob on its comb. Can anyone confirm that it is male?

    While we are at it, this 14 week old Dominique suddenly got much redder in her face than its sister and its tail feathers are getting a little top curl. Can someone ease my mind and tell me its a pullet?

    So the Sultan just let out his/her first crow. Strong chance he is still female? I would rather start finding him a home then try to rehome in the middle of winter if this is now definitely a male.
