    Certainly looks like a pullet - but how old is the bird?

    It looks like a pullet, but like Ol Grey Mare, I would like to know its age.

    Pullet a rooster would have pointy hackle feathers and would stand more upright

    If it's 24 weeks, it's definitely a pullet.

    Pullet for sure. She should be laying soon!

    Definitely a pullet. If she isn't laying already, she should start soon.
