    Perhaps just paranoia after getting through a bout of cocci but I am wondering if this hatchery pullet is a roo -- she has got rather big legs. Any thoughts woud be appreciated. She(He) is 5 weeks or so....

    Thanks![​IMG]

    Hmm 5 weeks and already is showing wattles. I'm not positive but I'm thinking it's a cockerel! Repost in a couple weeks with updated pics! :)

    At five weeks it is still too early. I don't really see any strong signs of it being a cockerel yet. Post in a few weeks.

    I'm also leaning toward pullet, but it's early days to be positive. Sometimes those Wyandotte ladies just have sturdy foundations [​IMG]

    This is starting to sound good -- though I am knocking on wood and will report back in a couple of weeks.
