    Picked up the new birds today, and this is one that is unidentified. I think it's a she, but would like another opinion!

    They were hatched out sometime in April. I don't know specific dates on them.

    Looks like a pullet to me! You may want to keep a watch on it though as the feathers are a little darker and I was told that the darker splash often end up being boys.

    It looks a lot like my splash pullet which was hatched April 28th.

    This is my pullet(left) and cockerel(right) ~ It was only a short time ago that they both looked like pullets, but then the cockerel really filled out and started getting his boy feathers ~ he still is not crowing.
