    I bought this bird at a show in Vancouver, WA. She was sold to me as a mismarked pullet. I don't breed or show, so I'm ok with mismarked. I thought she was pretty. I don't know how old she is, but I would guess she is at least 16 weeks old. I'm beginning to think she is a he.

    Definitely a cockerel. No chance it is a mismarked pullet. I would be rather upset with that seller.

    Mismarked pullets tend to look like this

    Black beard and chest, but notice the lack of cream colored head and hackles.

    Well, crap cakes. (S)he's my favorite bird too! And as far as the seller and that show is concerned, you don't even want to get me started. It's been a long battle since that show.

    What on earth does one do with a sweet, loving cockerel that sits in your lap and purrs? (S)he is so hen-like in behavior that I fully expected her to be my broody girl. So frustrating. I let myself become so attached to this bird!
