    Can anyone tell me if this is a hen or rooster. We got her as a "pullet" but she looks more like a rooster. Any feed back would be great! Thx!

    Pretty sure that is a rooster. Big red comb and wattles, and the fact that he is more white than black are roo indicators. Sorry.

    No doubt in my mind that is totally a rooster. Previous post is right. Much more white, bright red comb

    Yup, that's what they do. Roos are always the sweetest one, and then Fluffy crows [​IMG] Happened to me TWICE, and both of them were crazy stupid.
