    I have a 6-ish week old pullet (my first), and I'd like to know what breed it is. Here's a photo:

    Can we get a better profile shot with the comb and legs? I agree the coloring looks like pullet, but I'm seeing a lot of comb for six weeks and the legs look kinda thick, better pics would help. There's another thread on here where the chick looked pretty close at this age, and was actually a rooster, probably second generation sex-link. Where did this chick come from and what were you told it was?
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=581962 is the thread I'm referring to.

    All basically the same thing. And it looks like that could possibly be a little roo.
