    S/he is by far the most docile of all of our chicks. I can pick her up easily and she is calm. She's very curious about us. However, she's getting a comb MUCH quicker than her siblings and she's the biggest of them all. WDYT? They are just over 4 weeks old. I was told they're all pullets but she has a mark on her head which is also very suspicious.




    Here are her siblings for comparison (and notice how teeeeeeny little Clementine is!)

    I would say it's a little too early to tell. If the comb was red, I would say roo, but for now, it's just a waiting game.

    Beatrix looks like a pullet to me. In one so young developing a comb so fast it should have more red in it if she were a he.
