    Yes, there are two of those. They’re a cross of cream legbar and isbars called ice cream bars...not sure if those are really a thing or not. Those two splash ones are roosters. Been crowing since 5 weeks old. Lol

In love with this one and fingers crossed for a pullet!

    Hi!

    Beautiful bird and looking at her back feathers I would say for sure a pullet! Her comb is very similar in color to mine, what kept throwing me off is the 3 out of 9 roosters that stir things up a bit. Also I’m not fully convinced mine are 100% pullets yet bc of their saddle feathers, could just be part of their look since one of the three I know is a hen and she has them (just slightly) anyway yours definitely looks like a pullet! She’s beautiful!

    Aww thanks! Love her too and don’t want to rehome. It’s my first time with pea combs so just learning as I go. Hope yours are pullets too:)
