So I have 4 pullets - three have started laying and of course the one I have worried the most about being male has not. S(he) is just 23 wks this week and to the best of my knowlegde is sex-linked which should cause me to have no concern about her gender. Although a well-educated scientist, I am a FAR better worrier, so here I am seeking advice. She has been squatting about 2 weeks, becoming more frequent (really turning into a little hussy) and other than her very large comb and wattles, has no other signs she is not a she. So I am just hoping for someone to help easy my mind until that first egg comes (hopefully before the first crow.) She's a production black, as is one of the others, but she is smaller and doesn't seem quite as "mature" yet. I know they are crossed and so she could just have a different make-up than the other PB - it's just that comb and wattles!!! Thanks for indulging my over-active worry zone.
