    Two definite pullets. Can you take a good side standing shot of the suspect?

    He’s handsome!! Love his coloring!

    We had an we male (sexed pullet, but got that 10%error). He was downright ugly. Even our older male neighbor said outright: “that is one ugly chicken!”. In addition to his ugly coloring (like very mismatched and clashing clothing), he was developing a distinctive golden feathered mullet on his head/down his neck. Anyway, in comparison, your is quite the comely fellow!
