    We got 5 pullets. But this one sure has me convinced she is a roo!
    She does not crow but is the most vocal and has the largest comb and waddle by FAR!
    The only markings she has is some black markings on the front. I tried to take pictures.

    Maybe she is just a loud big combed pullet! They are just about 6 months old. No eggs yet!

    Thanks!

    How old is it? I'm leaning toward pullet, but age will help a lot.

    How about a side body shot - get her (I am fairly sure it is a pullet) from head to tail in the shot.

    How old?

    She should be getting ready to lay soon, if she is not already.


    How long have you had them?

    Yep, at six months she's getting ready to lay. The others will soon look like that, too, and then you'll be looking up egg recipes!

    I have a white hen just like that. Definitely a pullet!
