    Ok, I hope this works --

    EE from Randall Burkey. This little girl or guy is heavier than the others and I think very pretty. Any info on the gender and or color on this little one would be appreciated. They were supposed to be all pullets. Rec'd on the Weds after Thanksgiving so I guess that she is 4 weeks old. I just love them - they are all so pretty even if they are "mutts" ....

    Little early to tell gender. Wait a few more weeks, say at 8 weeks of age and post another pic if you can't tell.

    I'm leaning towards pullet. but it's still too early to tell. I have a roo with similar coloring.
