    (On the right)I purchased six "pullets" from atwoods and now they are about 4 weeks old. My "norma jean" is starting to look different than the others and we are not allowed to have roosters in my area. I'm afraid that she might actually be a he and I wanted to be sure.

    Given the light barring and redness of its comb, the chick on the right in the top pic and in the bottom pic (I assume is Norma Jean) is a cockerel. You will need to change his name to Norman.
