    "She" ruffles her neck feathers and bumps chests with the other chicks. To which my husband says is her celebratory "hi". Is this normal behavior for a pullet? She is around 3 months old.

    She looks like a pullet to me, there aren't any rooster characteristics that would say a boy. The ruffle in neck feathers is common in pullets as the assert themselves in the pecking order. I see it happen commonly with my 3 month old pullets. [​IMG]

    That is exactly what she does. I'm happy to see and know that girls bump chests too. :)
    Thank you for the reply.
