    I've been searching through pictures of 8 week old slw's and just can't decide what mine is. It'll occasionally bump chests with another chicken, but the encounters are brief (a single bump, two second stare, and they're done). My buff Orpington of the same age ,which I'm 99% sure is a pullet, is also the dominant of the flock. Any idea wether it's a boy or girl???

    Looks pullet if she's 8wks, comb pretty "yellowish" not red.

    That makes me feel so much better! (We can't have roosters in city limits here)
    The waddles were making me worried. They're small, but from what I found from other boards they said it was too early for pullers to have them

    We definitely needed this site when we first started chickens.
