    Ghost is a 4.5 week old Blue Andalusian. She was sexed as a pullet, but she is already looking very roo-ish to me. I know Andalusians have huge floppy combs, but someone pointed out to me that Ghosts's comb is already too pink for a pullet. Thoughts? Opinions?

    Very good chance that is a cockerel. Even when buying sexed pullets its common to get a cockerel. Sexing in not 100% accurate.

    Give this one a few more weeks. Occasionally you can have a rather manly looking pullet. It's rare, but it does happen.
