Here goes another try at determining my chick's gender. She is supposed to be a pullet, but she's feathering SO SLOW and her comb looks rather large. She's going to be 5 weeks old tomorrow. She seems to stand more erect and is almost always on top of the food and waterer. She used to be a loud mouth but now has quieted down. Olive was the biggest, now she's the smallest. The other cochin is the same age and is feathered the most, even our EE who is a week younger has more feathers. Do only females have pencilling? She's not a bantam.
