    From the patterning and degree of feathering I would guess pullet, since most males of whatever mix are blurrier and less patterned in my experience, but I'd also normally go by comb and wattle development too. Which can be irrelevant for a long time if it takes after the Brahma side, lol.

    Best wishes.

    Thank you! I
    Thank you! I got a pic of the comb but it wouldn't load. She has a straight comb, not too big

    Hopefully a girl then. Still, a girl that age should have just about nothing in terms of a comb. If it's already pink, not yellow, it's likely a male, but both genders of most breeds will take a lot longer to show of course.

    Best wishes, and you're welcome. :)

    It is too young to be sure, though.

    Sounds like a pullet for sure then. :)

    Best wishes.
