    I am thinking pullet, but I am still learning.

    the comb and wattles dont looked developed enough to be a roo, but I am also still learning about this breed, from what Ive heard, the blrw take longer to develop. but to me it looks like a pullet. [​IMG]

    The comb is a bit bumpy and the face pretty red, though maybe not quite a red as it appears in the pic?

    pullet. compare the feet to the others, they are also a good indicator at this age. Thinner shanks and feet, toes are pullets. The thicker are roos. Whenever I am in doubt with any breed that is the first place I look.

    I have BLRW chicks the same age, of both sexes. A couple I can tell, a couple I can't!? Yours looks like the two I'm 99% sure are pullets. It is easier when you have more to compare then to, but STILL not easy all the time! Who would have ever thought sexing a chicken would be SO difficult! [​IMG]

    Looks like my pullets at that age. All the boys had much more developed combs/waddles
