    Hello!! This is Dixie, a Delaware supposed pullet who is either five or six weeks old, not exactly sure. She is so much bigger than the others (THICK legs/feet) and seems to have a more developed comb and wattles. At this age, does anyone have any guess yet as to whether she is a girl or boy?

    The comb's not saying it to me yet but those sturdy thick legs sure look boy. I'd wait a while to be sure, but I'll bet it's a cockerel.
