    This blue andalusian Chicken was our free exotic mystery bird from the hatchery. We identified the breed but are confused on gender. I say pullet but others say cockerel when they see her/him. Chevy (his/her name) is 12 weeks old. I saw that this is a common thread of people wanting to know the gender differences on blue andalusians. 7EA01FCA-1E07-47F3-B918-3A140E182070.jpeg 7B6844E6-9C68-48D0-9346-8E4735201686.jpeg 59C31053-FF20-4FA3-A39B-BAF8D671661E.jpeg 0E11A829-E65E-4328-AA3A-0FFA9D7429A0.jpeg Please help!!

    That is definitely a cockerel.

We ordered 16 chickens. 1 knowingly a rooster 14 hens and 1 surprise chicken which is this one above. I did the wing identification where you hold out the wings while they were still chicks and Chevy had the multiple layers like hens do and our rooster had only 1 like he is supposed too.
