    Thanks for the reply, i really hope its a girl. I just worry bc 3 of the 6 are def little roos, then I have one I know for a fact is a girl (she is wheaton) and then I have a black on im pretty sure is a girl but with this lav one im so on the edge about. Her comb has only one row and isnt red like the others but her attitude is to me like a little roos as she is always fighting with them. But that could be just that she is 2 weeks or so older than them which accounts for her slightly bigger size and attitude. The other roos got big all the sudden and fast catching up to her size or almost her size within a week or so suddenly. Also their beards are more defined than hers but her beard is bigger than the other pullets so im kinda confused with this one lol
