    We are fairly new to chickens- we have had a small flock of buff orpington layers for 3 years now and decided to try meat birds this year. We got some cornish x and a batch of mixed heritage breed cockerels. This particular chicken is from the batch of mixed heritage, but we are unsure of the breed or sex. It is calmer than the others, which are obviously roos. It has become a favorite of my boys and if it is a pullet, we would likely put it in with some buff orpington pullets we got at the same time. It is 6 weeks, 2 days old.
    Thank you for any help you can give me![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Does anybody have any guesses about what breed or advice for integrating her in with other pullets the same age?

    Your son is such a cutie pie. That little pullet obviously likes your little guy as much as he likes her.

    Thank you! This little chick has been "his" since we got them (despite our attempts to interest him in a buff pullet). I am very happy to hear that she is a girl and we will be keeping her. Any tips on integrating her with the other little girls? Should I wait until we move them all to the new coop or try right away?
