    A few weeks ago I posted a pic of my BCM chicks. This is the only one everyone said watch, possibly a roo. What do you think now?

    Pullet, but I'm not sure it's a BCM? People with more experience should chime in, but the BCM's I've seen don't have that coloring.

    Perhaps a FBCM pullet with a really mossy hackles and chest? Definitely not a FBCM roo. Those show the comb really early. How old is she?

    It is hard to say for certain on the breed given the angle of the photo. It could be a BCM that is partridge (which I believe is a DQ) but to me the head shape looks "off" from what I'd expect from that breed. Several other breeds or mixes are more likely, thought. A shot of the body would help.

    How old is this bird? My initial impression is it's a pullet.

    What color are this birds legs? Are they feathered?

    ETA: Just read your original post about sexing your BCM's. If you bought these chicks from a reputable breeder then this bird looks to be partridge--if she has the genetics she will still lay gorgeous dark eggs and is perfect for a breakfast pen, but not a breeding pen. If you got them from someone who wasnt a reputable breeder I'd say there is a very high likelihood that a few roosters jumped in the pen [​IMG]
