    I will post pics in the am. My battery is dead on my camera. I have a 19 week old Dom "pullet" In the last few days I have be looking at "her". The tail is looking rooish but there has been no crowing. If is was a roo shouldn't there be crowing??????? I am thinking that it is a banty do to the fact "she" isnot near the size as my BO's pullets that are only 4 weeks older.

    Dom cockerels would have huge red combs, much lighter coloring and saddle feathers by now.

    Look on the legs. Do you see any spur forming? It would be somewhat in line with the inner toe and slightly to the inside.
