This was/is supposed to be a sexed pullet but since this happened before to me with the same breed, I'm wondering if this one is a pullet or a cockerel?
It was hatched March 10th.






Thanks :he

For sure a pullet! Her tail feathers don't stick up like a male's for one, the comb is smaller and less colorful and the waddles are also smaller.

I have to disagree, I definitely think that is a cockerel. Some birds [especially from bigger breeds like Orpingtons] are pretty slow to mature and do not get big combs and wattles early on, but the pointy saddle and hackle feathers give him away.

No chance it's going to change?

Thanks everyone. This is the second time this has happened and it's my daughters and the last one was hers too. She is going to be so upset! You all sound absolutely positive too!
