    Hi there. I have 3 Delawares that are about 8 weeks. I'm pretty sure the first is a roo, the second a pullet, and the third has me confused. It's comb is smaller and paler than the roo, but it has a very smutty back, which from what I read is more common in a roo. Any guesses are greatly appreciated.

    I'm leaning towards pullet too. Time will tell. [​IMG]
