    So, I was sighing in relief that all my EEs were pullets, then this happened (bird pictured on right)

    That redness in the shoulders... I should be worried, right? The only thing is, no comb to speak of at 10 weeks:

    Someone tell me I'm just being paranoid!

    You are just being paranoid.

    ;)

    That's a girl. The red is not enough to make me think otherwise. She's beautiful. If it did turn out to be a boy, I'd be surprised.

    I love the awkward middle-schooler-in-between-chick-and-chicken phase! So awkwardly cute. :)

    Looks like a pullet but the pic is a little blurry. How old are they? I had a boy just like your black and white roo. he was a sweetheart but had to give him up because I can't have roosters here.
