So, a friend of mine has four BO chickens, all roughly 8 months old. From the start, this one was bold and "rooster-like". Three months ago I was certain this chick was a boy, but now I'm not so sure.

No crowing, apparently. And now from it's looks I am almost certain it is a "she" now. What confused me was that three months ago his/her comb growth and feathering was screaming "cockerel"!

Anyways, please tell me what you think. In the pictures, he/she is the most gold.

I have one BO pullet that looks just like yours. At 8 months old, isn't she laying? Mine all started laying around 6 months.
She gets about two eggs a day from unknown hens. I think one has too narrow a body to develop eggs, she is sorta the runt, but the others should be perfectly capable.
