    Here is RoadRunner. We are hoping she's a she but what do you think? She/he is 11 weeks old today and is quite a bit smaller than the rooster looking ones.

    Yep, I have to agree, pullet. Looks just like my Baby Butt. She grew her feathers in so slow, I was worried about her for awhile. Now she has them but she doesn't really have any tail feathers like everyone else. So that's how I came up with her name "Baby Butt".

    I'm sure she's a she, too. My BO roo is most obviously a boy, the comb is very large, and he's getting lovely golden shimmery feathers throughout his coat - he'll be a beauty up until he becomes dinner :|
