    I have this chicken in with my young roosters right now but he has only a little comb and it is more yellow than any of the others. I am sending my roosters from processing this week so I need to know! The breed is Basque ( eo).

    They have single combs right?

    Looks like a girl. How old?

    I would take the chance and keep her. Personally it seems like i never have enough hens. Mostly because I am a chicken addict, partially because my friends all want to buy a few here and there and before they start to lay, I am down to half of what I started with.

    So if it were me i would keep her and take a chance. Plus i think it is probably a hen.

    Yes, single comb. They were hatched out mid-august.

    I'd be very surprised if it was a boy. :)

    I'd say that is quite surely a pullet.
