    She's 5 weeks old (at least she was supposed to be a pullet) - her comb is turning pink/red and now I am worried.

    I tried to get a picture of the tail:

    So is she a he? Or ??

    From those pics looks like a she. I cannot see comb color real well at that angle. But her tail feathers look like a pullet.

    She looks like a pullet to me too. I have EE's and am still questioning their gender and mine are 10 wks old. I can't wait to find out for sure what mine are so I can find something else to worry about. [​IMG]

    LOL okay so it's not just me worrying! We live in town and a roo just won't do. My poor husband keeps making plans for a chicken tractor and I keep adding chicks!

    LOL So I'll be worrying for awhile.
