    This is my Nameless chick. I haven't been able to name her (sold as a pullet) because s(he) has always acted a bit rooish (is that a word).

    S(he) always carries her/his tail very upright, but then so did my pure white EE pullet that lays wonderful green/blue eggs. Does anyone have any opinions? I know I should wait for a crow or an egg, but you know.... S(he) has a single row of bumps on the comb as near as I can tell.

    A single row in a pea comb means a pullet. Very, very pretty coloring.

    Looks like a pullet to me. And a very pretty one too! [​IMG]

    Thanks. I think she is pretty too. The black and white feathers are quite striking. It will be interesting to see how her adult feathers come in. My GLW's coloring improved dramatically at about 2-3 months.
