    At only 12 weeks, that much comb means rooster.

    Above is "Mongo" and below is "Daisy" You can see the difference.

    Yup. When BPR's get all tall and lanky you can tell it's a Rooster. Besides the obvious comb and waddles (BPR pullets can also sometimes have) when they look all goofy and tall you got a Rooster.

    Don't feel too badly! I got a straight run mix--out of the 7 BRs, I think I * might* have one pullet!
    Live and learn--no more straight run for me!!
