    So, this is Sprite. I got her as a sexed pullet, and at 7 weeks I am scared that she may be a he... ugh... I have already had to rehome 5 roosters that were supposed to be pullets... I really love this one... she sits on my shoulder and gives hugs when I hold her up to my neck. I am hoping that I am being delusional, because we aren’t allowed to have roosters where I live. It kind of looks like there may be three rows on her comb though, and I have read that that is a sign of a roo... but this is a different comb than my other chicks and if there are three rows, they are not growing.

    She's a pullet. I'd be concerned about those 2 blue Silkies, though, if you can't have roosters.

    Also, the other chicken with the comb like hers, looks like a rooster.

    lol I am well aware that "Grace" looks very much like a he, the other blue has a non-existent comb though and at 11 weeks, I am thinking it is a girl. All of her feathers have not come back yet though, so we will see.

    The other chicken you see is a Blue laced red wyandotte, and she has a rose comb, and also she is 12 weeks old... If she were a he, she would have a bright red comb by this point, well at least I was told...
