    I have some 8 week old crossbreed chicks that were given to me as eggs for my broody hen to sit. I know 2 are cockerels and 2 are pullets but I have one I'm not so sure on. I was leaning towards pullet but now I'm not so sure.

    Looks like a pullet so far, unless he/she is developing sickle and saddle feathers. It's hard to tell by the picture.

    It has a pretty bright comb for a 8 week old but I'm going towards pullet also.
