    "She" is now 19 weeks old. I had a lot of mixed votes on her gender when I posted her pics a month ago.
    Is it definitive now? Thanks!

    Darker, patchy wing color aside - everything else says pullet - by 19 weeks you should be seeing some obvious hackle, saddle and sickle feathering....I'm going to say oddly colored pullet.

    That's what I have been thinking (and hoping). Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure that you have a pullet.

    Great!
    I felt like she must be a she. No crowing, she is the smallest of my chickens as well.
