    Hi guys,

    Hope to be able to pick your brains a little over the gender of my 'girl', Rio.

    I purchased her yesterday on the understanding she was a pullet. However, I'm not sure. She is 8wks old approx.

    What do you all think? I've had no problems sexing my own hatched chicks but i'm a but baffled by this one.[​IMG]

    I'm leaning heavily towards pullet. No sign of saddle feather at all. But the crest is kinda big, but not wild and loose like a cockerel would be.

    I really hope she's a 'she' :) I'll have to wait a few more weeks to know for sure won't I?

    yep, at least 4 weeks to be sure. Unless "she" starts crowing.
