    Howdy, friends. I have a Delaware pullet that I'm questioning the gender on. She came sexed as a female from the feed store, but her feet are huge and her comb is hot pink, even if it's still small. She is perhaps a week shy of three months old.

    I know Delawares can go pink early on, but really? Look at her next to the EE that's two weeks older (whom I strongly suspect is a male.)

    Sorry, can't see the tail good in this one. She's a wiggle worm.

    Any thoughts? Am I overreacting? Or do I have a fine young cockerel in the making?

    At 12 weeks I am going with pullet on that one even with the red shade, could be a really slow developing roo but I would expect at least some comb and wattle development at this age.

    Okay, the wattle and comb thing is what I'm banking on, too. Thanks!
