    2 months old this Sunday. Wow! I will be thrilled if both my 8 week old chicks are pullets!

    Look at the tail feathers. They look so very hennish :confused:

    Yes, because the bird is still a baby. It's only 7 weeks. Sex feathers don't become reliable until around 12+ weeks.

    I'm sure I responded to this on a separate thread but... What's the breed? Looks like a white leghorn? Can't totally depend on comb size or color... If you could I would have rehomed my girl who has laid for me reliably since 14 weeks.

    I say again, not totally sure but, shape and feathers say pullet to me.
