    A week ago I bought 6 pullets from tsc. Tsc said they were unsure of the breed but knew they were pullets. My question is one of them is feathering in a lot slower than the rest And I have heard in the past that means rooster? They remind me of my comets when they were that age but I am not 100%sure since I have only owned comets. They are all supposed to be the same age I've had them a week and tractor supply said they were a week old when we got them. That would put them at two weeks. I added some pictures. Of the one in question and the others any info on breed or gender appreciated.[​IMG]

    Sex-link roosters do take longer to feather out than sex-link hens, so you might have a rooster.

    the thing that sucks most about this is that you really just have to wait until they are older to find out for sure :( mine are 4 weeks old and its looking like alot of my pullets are roos!

    I'm thinking pullet (because of the coloring). Wing feathers are not the most accurate way to sex chicks.
