    This 4-5 week old has me wondering if its a pullet or roo. Today i noticed a faint blush of waddles. The personality is very gregarious and friendly, (my last chick w this endearing personality was a roo.) Please give me your thoughts.[​IMG]

    Looks like a pullet to me. At that age they can sometimes flush on their faces a bit. A little rooster would be pink in the comb by now and lighter in feathering.

    I raised a barred rock boy and girl together, didn't know what they were at the time (they just turned 1 yesterday and are in my profile pic) and my boy was definitely bigger and had a pinker taller crest and taller legs than her around that age.
