    Okay BYCers, I need your help! This bird is around 11-12 weeks old. Is (s)he a pullet or a cock?

    hmmmmmm her head looks like a pullet but look at that body and feet it might be a cockerel but i'd wait a few more weeks just to be sure

    This bird has had me confused since I got it...(s)he definately had the big puppy dog roo feet for a while...and she is still quite leggy...and the comb is way bigger than everyone else's...but then again, all of my BLRW have been super hard for me to decide the gender of...here is a pic of the same bird at like 6 weeks...

    The only thing that looks roo to me is the legs. She/he is tall! [​IMG]

    Looks like a girl to me so far.

    I say it's a she, here's a picture of my cock when he was 3 months old. I had to get rid of him because we are not allowed roosters.

    I can be wrong, I keep going back and forth as well on being a he or she. Body says he since my girls were more danty, everything shouts out a he but the saddle feathers are not quite right for a he so I'm thinking she again.

    now that i look more it's definatly a pullet!

    she has the female color pattern and by now you would see pointy feathers coming out

    That's a pullet in the first photos. Its not feathering in like a roo at all. To small of comb too. Some are just big. I've a splash pullet that's a good 1/3 bigger them her siblings. I think it has to do with health and who gets/hogs the most feed [​IMG]
