    Here is my 10 week old mixed breed beauty with the place holder name of Gray Baby until the mystery is solved. Has a bit of everything from silkie to cream legbar and who knows what else!
    Can anyone take a stab at gender for me please?

    The arch to the tail feathers and slim cape feathers has me leaning toward roo. BUT, the lack of comb development screams pullet.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I think pullet. I'm not certain though, she is very pretty!

    Three pullet votes and one for cockerel. Any other takers?

    That's a cockerel. You shouldn't keep such a bird in your flock, so box him up and ship him to me asap [​IMG].


    Just kidding. That's a pretty pullet, no doubt. This is what I love about mixed breed birds, you wind up with something so pretty and unique.
