    "She" may be too young, but does anyone have any ideas? She's a Jersey giant, 3-4 weeks.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like a hen for sure. the comb would be bigger if it was a rooster, and the legs would be thicker.

    I don't want to be a downer, but I'm just going to throw out a word of caution. Jersey Giants are slow to mature, often young roosters don't announce themselves early like production bred birds will. So, while I don't see any male signs yet, I say it's too early to call pullet with confidence.

    Okay, I didn't know wether she was old enough yet or not. I kind of figured she was a bit young:( thank you!
