    Actually looking pullet at this point.

    Many lines of BCM males telecast very early. I knew at 2 weeks.

    Don't be fooled by the tall stance. BCM have a tall stance. It is the comb you look at. At this point, nothing is indicating a rooster.

    Do post again around 6 weeks. Most BCM have telecasted by then.

    Look at my BCM brood in my byline below to see a comparison of a rooster to a precocious sister and a "normal" sister.

    Quote:' [​IMG] Good information... I was looking at the comb, and its looking pullet like....most of my boys around that age will have redish combs. I just know that you can never be accurate at that age.. :)
