    Looks like a pullet to me. If at any time it starts developing reddish leakage on the wings, you'll know we're wrong and it's a male.

    It was the biggest check with the hugest legs when "she" hatched. I would LOVE it if shes a she!!

    Reddish leakage refers to traces of red feathering appearing in otherwise red-free plumage.
