    Hello! I just got my very first two chick's the other day. Sold from a hardware store, they were listed as females. After looking online one is definitely a pullet. Any help with this one? It has darker legs but broad white stripes on the wings and a bit of tail feathers the other doesn't have. Age is 14 days old.

    Okay, thank you!

    This chick is also very content in spending all it's time snuggled on my lap, not sure if that behaviour can say anything. Sorry im so new at this!

    It is too early to tell for sure, but I'm thinking pullet.
