    Too Funny -

    I was just looking at my EE and was thinking the same thing - her comb is starting to turn red - [​IMG] I am worried she is a roo! LOL She is also much larger than her BO friend and has always been a bit pushy.

    Here is my "girl" I hope

    I think you have a cockerel due to the very wide comb.

    I can't see much in your photos Louella, too fuzzy, but the thing that really made me wonder was hackle feathers. This one has some super pointy ones compared to the others. And then the shanks are big thick ones.

    I guess the sexors weren't having a good day at MMH that day. I have a LB that is also on my watch list. So much for all pullets in that order!

    My "Girl" has red in her comb - just noticed it tonight - she does have thicker legs than the BO, but I assumed that was a breed thing. She feathered out quickly and had more feathers than the BO sooner. Her adult tail feathers are short and rounded. So I am hoping that the red is just her and she turns into a she and not a he.

    here is a pick of her posing:
