    I need your expertise, please. I bought 2 fertile eggs for my broody (no rooster) and this little darlin' hatched out. The other was a quitter. I'm thinking pullet; defined spot, dark legs, black down. She is either pure Barred Rock, or Rock\Silkie. She's got light skin and no feathering on her feet. Am I correct in assuming "Rosa" is a pullet? [​IMG]My granddaughter will be disappointed if she isn't. Thank you all!

    Sorry, but it is too young to tell gender. I'd post more photos when she is at least 4 weeks old (ideally 6-8 weeks). By then we should be able to guess on gender.[​IMG]
