    I use to be sure my BO was a female, but the older she has gotten I have started to reconsider. The lady that I bought her from said she was. I just want to make sure lol! I am really hoping she's a pullet and would anybody have any idea how old she might be??? Her name is Peaches[​IMG]

    Sorry, cockerel and not BO. My estimate would be about eight weeks old. How long have you had him?

    Looks to be a mix, possibly some BO in there. Does he have feathered legs?

    Ok, no feathers.

    Probably male, not 100%. Post pictures of this one in a few more weeks when gender will be more obvious.

    Ok:) So is no feathers a good thing or a bad thing?

    Doesn't matter. I was thinking that he could have some Cochin in him, but they have feathered legs and that is dominant (so would show). But no feathers, so no Cochin. [​IMG]

    Oh ok awesome! I'm a little on the upset side, for the fact that the lady charged me extra for guarantee that Peaches would be a pullet. Well I guess I'll have to change his name:( Same for the second chicken Daisy...
