    Here's my little Sunny- still a mystery at 12 weeks. She/he stated to get a little pink/red this weekend. When I bought from feed store they said she was a girl~

    I would be shocked if that was a rooster. Pretty either way though.

    Based on her comb size & wattles, I think she's a pullet - and a pretty one.

    Pullet.

    I had a BO roo in a hatchery order and it was obvious by 6 weeks.

    My chicks are 11 weeks old, and the roos are very obvious. They have very red combs and wattles that hang down and are floppy. My BO's are females, (at least I hope so) so I don't know what an 11 week old BO roo looks like, but yours looks like a hen to me.
