    I know it's a little early but I have suspected that one of my pullets is not a she from the age of 1 week old it's stance and behavior is different from the other two. If I can post their picture I would appreciate any educated guesses as I have not had this breed before. thanks

    I had the same feeling about 2 of my "girls" last year. It was around 4 weeks I think I started noticing the difference in their behavior. And what do you know, around 5 weeks later, they started to crow.

    Can you enlarge your pic? I'd be glad to help, but I have old eyes.

    I don't know how I was suprised that I was able to even get a picture posted
    I hope this made the picture larger

    Okay is the chick that you suspect the one standing in the center of that pic?

    They are all looking like pullets to me so far. Can you get a closer pic of that one? I don't see any red in the comb, which by 4 weeks you would usually see on a male unless it is really slow maturing.

    I'm thinking the same thing.

    I see the way it is standing, but by 4 weeks my BO roos have had little red wattles and pink to red combs. I don't see any red on that chick, at least not from the distance in the picture...
