    Hi all - I'm totally stumped on whether my Dominique pullet is actually a roo. The dark shade had me thinking pullet, but then I saw the new draping tail feathers. Any guesses? I took her in a month ago, so I think she or he is around 4 months old. Sorry for the bad pic, she's a quick little bugger.

    Pullet, 100%. Tail feathers have nothing to do with it at her age. Those will molt out. A cockerel would be much lighter colored and have a huge red comb by now. It's a GIRL! Congrats!

    Thanks! Everyday I changed my mind. Not that I wouldn't mind a Dominique roo! Now the polish silkie cross behind her is the only mystery, but I'm leaning toward girl.
