    Hi folks, i'm trying to determine if my 5 month old sebright is a pullet or cockerel. She crows EVERY morning, at least 2-5 times. it definitely has a "cock-a-doodle-do" ring to it, though one in which all the syllables are blending together to make a more flowing crow [​IMG]

    she has practically no comb. it is small, dark, black tipped.

    She seems healthy overall.

    Any ideas on whether she is a he/she?

    Can you post some pictures of it? Particularly a facial shot, and some shots of the back and tail? This will get you much more responses.

    ETA: I'm willing to bet though it is a rooster, due to the crowing part.
