    Is this little one a pullet or a cockerel??? We aren't able to keep a Rooster, and I am scared of getting too attached. There are teeny little tail feathers coming through, but as "she" is only a week (give or take a day or two) old is it too soon to tell?? "Her" other week old girlfriends have little tails already. Any input would be great. Thanks

    Okay..... Thank you. I know with some breeds you can tell right away. Was hoping this was one of those.

    is this a bantam? I think it looks like a golden laced sebright. if the comb starts to get red its pry a rooster.
