    Looks like a pullet to me. What is it an Olive Egger?

    Right now nothing screams cockerel, but the bird appears a bit young for gender ID.

    Does dad have feathered legs?

    I would give this one some more time before deciding. There's no comb color yet, but that pea comb has 3 rows that could potentially mean male.

    I'd say pullet, but what difference does it make in where it lives? You separating your genders or something? :confused:
