This is 3 week old Annabelle, purchased as a pullet from a feed store. She looks like a pullet to me w/ the traditional coloring, has a small comb, and thin legs. However her body is more elongated than her sisters and her tail feathers grew in so much faster than the others. I wouldn't have questioned her sex if it weren't for her behavior. She has always been a pecker: eyes, spots on the brooder, etc. She also right away was eating the fluff off the others, then right before 2 weeks old it turned to serious feather pulling, then plucking and drawing blood. There was no reason for this behavior like malnourished, too hot, lack of space, etc. We did the isolation and tried 2 attempts at reuniting but it didn't work. Unfortunately we are going to re home her to a free range flock but need to know her sex first. I know it is early but does anyone have any idea of which sex she is?
