    cockerel for sure. I had some late bloomers, too, that had me confused for forever. I think we get so hopeful that they're actually girls that we can't see obvious signs on our own birds that we easily spot on someone else's!
     
  3. im ganna say pullet. nothing is screaming cockrel to em except fot the neck feathers but i see them on ur other hens. its body is to round and flufffy for a cockrel. i could be wrong. but im saying pullet. shes close to laying

    Thanks everyone!! 1 vote for cockerel and 7 for pullet. It would be great if she is indeed a pullet. That would bring it up to 5 LO pullets in this pen :)
    All the others are obvious at this stage while this one has me changing my mind every other day. No one in the pen is laying yet but should be any day.
