    I have one questionable chick that I am thinking is a roo. We bought 4 chicks at a feed store and were told they were all pullets but of course, no guarantee. Here "he" is.

    With the other 3 (we think the other black one is a mottled cochin, and two BO..agree?)

    The two cochins together (the other one has a tiny comb coming in as well)

    So, what do you guys think? Is he a "he"?

    Thank you guys! Wow, maybe she is a she after all! This is our first chicken experience so I don't have much to compare to [​IMG] I have thought from early on the way she/he carried her head (neck stretched out) and how dominant over the others and the early comb that it might be a boy, but your pullet pictures look more like her! I guess we will just have to wait and see!
