    I usually feel pretty good guessing the gender of everyone else's chickens...why can't I figure out my own?!? This young chicken is 16 weeks old and I was feeling pretty confident that ALL my chickens were pullets. Until I noticed this tail feather the other day!!! Ack!

    And I was taking a "chelfie" (chicken selfie) so here's the comb and wattle shot.

    I agree with the pullet theory.
