    Hmmm, RobbieB, she looks like a pullet, but, a better picture of her comb would help. The patches on her shoulders look more orange than red, which is pullety. ( Is pullety a word?)

    After the storm passes i will catch her and get a good comb picture. Its definitely not a bird who likes to be handled. :/
    Or lets you get very close. I was starting to think between the orange patches different looking comb and the behavior that I had 2 roos. But i guess even 2 out of 32 isn't a bad ratio. I'm pretty sure that this rir is a roo[​IMG]

    She is a pullet for sure. She has really pretty coloring! Pullets have gradual color changes from one to the next. Cockerels have splotchy looking colors and they get dark red splotches on their wings. Expect some pretty eggs from this one! :)
