    Does anyone know whether this chicken is boy or girl? I am thinking boy. Was the smallest with no tail up until a few weeks ago, is now 10 weeks, has a sister who has more coloring and upright tail,orange comb. The comb on this bird is very flat but more pinky in color. They are EE's father was a buff orpington mother a mix. I really have no idea! I appreciate any input.

    I certainly see that one feather you're talking about! It screams male to me, but the comb and lack of waddles aren't too masculine. The forum would probably like a comparison picture to the other pullet you mentioned.

    I have managed to get some photos together of the two of them, the one I believe is a girl has more speckling on her back. First two pics are the don't know!
