    From most of the pics I have seen it would depend on the quality of the chick. From a hatchery it could be either, but from a reputable breeder it looks like a girl from the light colored breast. So, I would guess Pullet by far.

    At 5 weeks, my Duccle cockerels have a nice start to their combs so I am going with pullet too.

    I hope you guys are right! She's the only one that hatched from six shipped eggs from a very reputable breeder. Was hoping she was a pullet. . . [​IMG]
