    At first glance she looks like a hen. How old is she and what breed? A few side pictures would also help.

    Welcome to BYC Dottie!!

    They are about 8weeks old.. I think she's a she too.. But I put her pick on a chicken facebook page, and the person came back and said she thought she was a "donald" and not a "dottie".. I've already had to give up my 3 first ones a few months ago.. Broke my heart.. I really hope I have girls this time! I have 7 in all.. I bought these from a feed and seed store, they had been sexed. They told me 90 percent sure they were pullets...

    I agree with the posts above, Dottie does look like a pullet from that picture.

    I would say pullet, from the first picture her comb doesn't look too red are big for her age and the feathering doesn't look rooser-ish.
