Did Southern States sell me a cockeral from the pullet bin?

    3 weeks old, a full head taller than the Golden comet the same age, already has pink wattles coming in, and VERY thick legs! It was in a bin labeled RIR and NHR pullets. The size and pink wattles make me think boy, and also the attitude. She struts around like she owns the place. But her feathers came in much sooner than the golden comet's did. The golden comet is definitely a pullet. What do you think?

    Can you post a picture? It sounds like a boy but not sure.

    I'm thinking you're correct: boy.

    darn it! I've been thinking "she" looked like a boys since "she" was a week old. He just keeps looking more and more like a boy! Just the way he looks at me is so rooish, too! Well, we don't have a roo right now, we finally decided to get rid of our old rooster b/c he was just too mean. I'm sure we have a few from the mixed sr bins plus this one. We'll see how they turn out as they get older before I decide which one or ones to keep
