    Hello everyone, I recently added some new "girls" to my flock. Fingers crossed I don't get anymore roos since I already have two. The silkies and jubilee orpington are all around 8 weeks old. I also have a frizzle named Lulu who I believed was a pullet until a few weeks ago. She doesn't have a tail like a room but she doesn't really look like a pullet anymore either. She's around 16 weeks. If anyone can give me their input I would appreciate it!

    Oprah: Thinking she is a mix. It looks like she has a straight comb.

    Last one looks like a rooster but the rest look like pullets!

    Thank you! My frizzle is really confusing me. One day she acts like a rooster, the next day she acts like a pullet. I'll wait it out for a little and see if anything changes with her. Luckily my breeder lets me exchange my roosters!

    Lulu is a cockerel. The black silkie is too young to tell. S/he isn't a mix, just hatchery quality. I have a single combed white silkie from Ideal. Going by color the partridge is a pullet, and the Orp looks female as well.

    Awww, poor Lulu! Hopefully our breeder can find him a good home. What is the difference in the color of partridge silkies that makes you think it's a girl?

    I'm not so certain that Lulu is a cockerel. Lulu could just be an early maturing pullet. It's hard to tell with frizzles.

    Other than perhaps Lulu, all the others look like pullets so far, even the black Silkie (though it is too young to be certain on it).

    I'm leaning towards Lulu being a cockerel, but the others look like pullets for now.
