    Louieandthecrew I am actually a female!

    Hello,
    I just posted a different thread called "Welsummer - Hen or Rooster" and the first picture has my Delaware mix in it. A lot of people were saying that she was a roo and the same amount say hen! So I was just seeing what everyone else out there though! I was also wondering what she is mixed with. Any guesses? Thanks!

    I want to say pullet, but I can't be certain without knowing the age. [​IMG]

    5 or 6 months? In that case I say pullet for sure. The comb and wattles would be bigger if it was a roo (and you would of heard some crowing by now). Typically pullet's combs turn red when they are about ready to start laying; and 5-6 months old is the average age for a pullet to start laying. [​IMG]

    I think pullet - stance looks very girly, and 5-6 months a roo should be VERY obvious.

    Bet $100 on pullet! (I'll PM you my address and you can send a money order when it lays a egg)







    (I'M KIDDING!)



    But really... pullet.


    BTW - I breed Dels... what is she mixed with? Do you know?
