    ALL OPINIONS APPRECIATED! My last board was all roo votes, now getting alot of pullet votes ~ please take another look even if you already have. This is my favorite chick, and I already found a home for Blackie -- but is there any chance it's a pullet? Because if yes I will have to keep her until I can be positively sure, I luv her/him [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks like a pullet to me as well, but it'd help to know the age.

    As someone who just re-homed a very handsome BA rooster I would tell you that yours is DEFINITELY a hen.

    Thank you for your replies!

    My chicken is a 2 month black orpington. Does that change your opinions?

    Privately raised, not hatchery purchased ~ though I don't know the bloodline history at all.

    Thanks for the compliment on their little home too [​IMG]
