    I have a two week old black giant. I don't need any more roosters and there's no way of knowing its gender but it's standing up tall a lot of the time. Do rooster behaviors always mean it's a rooster or do pullets do that too?

    Pullets can strut tall too, although roosters do it more.

    Comb development will be a better indicator as I've had snotty pullets, aggressive pullets, pullets that chest bump.
