    Well, this cute little one is supposed to be a girl, but I am nervous that she is a rooster. I just love her & I can't have roosters where I live. Anyone have an educated guess?

    The breeder said she is 8 weeks old, but she looks younger to me.

    Thanks for your help !!!

    oh, boy! I was thinking pullet until the last pic. Sorry, I gotta vote roo.

    edit to add: But I could totally be wrong. I've noticed that with the Cuckoos it seems that there are obvious boys, obvious girls, and then a lot that are right in between.

    Definitely not 8 weeks old - I'd say it's closer to 4 weeks of age.

    That's a roo. Too light to be a pullet.
