    I posted on chicken behavior and egg laying about another issue I had with her, but now Im wondering if she is a he for some reason, she is dominating and she is almost 14 weeks old and I noticed the other day that her nose and comb was starting to pink up. She was ordered and sent as a pullet from Ideal. What do you think, I hope she is a pullet, she isn't crowing yet but most of my boys aren't just the one but he was an early bloomer so........ Any thoughts?[​IMG] Thanks Sandy

    Looks like a pullet from a distance but are the hackle feathers rounded or more pointed? If they are more pointy it could be a roo.

    She looks a lot like my EE pullet of a similar age. All of my girls have started to pink up a little bit, but nothing like a rooster would have by now. I say she looks like a "she" - hopefully we don't both have roos. [​IMG] (I highly doubt mine is a roo!)

    Quote:I went out and checked and she doesn't have any pointy feathers on her neck or Saddle feathers So hopefully she is still a girl! LOL Her pattern kinda makes her look like there pointy in the pic. but when you pick the feathers up to look at them they are rounded.
