    If this bird is 16+ weeks I would have to say it's a pullet. It does seem to have some traits that say roo and if it was younger I would say roo but at 16 weeks it would be really showing it's boydom LOL! I would be pretty certain it is a female!

    I sure hope so. She's more like 17 to 18 weeks old. She hatched under our neighbor's deck, and we were all so busy at the time we didn't pay close attention to the date we discovered her.

    Thanks. A couple of weeks ago we were so resigned that it was a boy, my husband was ready to find a new home for it. But since its gender is still iffy, I think we'll just have to wait and see.
