    This is Fay, I'm hoping she's a pullet but if its a cockerel I'll keep it anyway because I am so attached to it. It is 21 weeks old.
    Thanks for looking!

    I will try to get some pics of the crest and comb. I can't get her to hold still. Every time I snap the pic she moves her head lol

    So glad to hear everyone thinks she's a she! [​IMG]
