    Assuming this is a Blue Andalusian chick - would you guess it is a pullet or a young rooster? We ordered all pullets and this chick was one of four free Rare Breed bonus chicks we received. The chick is now about 7 weeks old. I looked at a bunch of Blue Andalusian pullet pictures on line and many had fairly noticeable combs. What do you think Pullet or Roo??? [​IMG]

    It's too young for saddle feathers.

    Tough one. I'm going to say pullet though.

    I have one that is 10 weeks old. Her comb is dark as in gray or black. So I would say maybe a roo. It's only a guess...I'm still a neewbie [​IMG]

    I'm gonna go with cockerel. [​IMG] This is quite a bit of comb/wattle development for a pullet of that age.

    The pink comb and patchiness of the coloring have me thinking cockerel.
