    I hope you guys are right. As PULLET is what I was hoping for. Mind telling me why you think so?

    The only thing to go on with Campines is comb and wattle development/color. Male and females will have exactly the same color pattern although males will later develop some streamers in the tail and hackles are larger. Often Campine males are hen feathered, even though that is a disqualification in shows.

    I believe Campine cockerels and cocks actually do have to be henfeathered. I’ll check my Standard of Perfection when I get home though.

    No, I think Sebright is the only breed allowed to be hen feathered in the Standard. But I'm pretty sure in Europe hen feathered Campine cockerels/cocks are accepted.

    The highlighted portion is from the American Standard of Perfection for the Campine 50E952D3-D10E-43FA-9EE6-4C4F6C4F8A30.jpeg
