    This is Inkon, my sons BR that came from the hatchery sexed as a pullet. WELL, I'm thinking roo now. She (?) is 7 weeks old. This is our first BR, so we are unsure as to what sex she (?) is! What do you all think?!?! Pullet or Roo?

    I have 2 BR and the oldest one is about 8 weeks and not quite that developed or red....so you might be right.
    On the bright side, you will be able to hatch pure BR's one day [​IMG]

    I'd say you have a bit of a sexing mistake there.

    I was hoping you would answer this one Cyn! I knew you'd know. [​IMG] This is quite the calm little roo! He loves sitting on Zak's lap and is just a little cuddle bug! Maybe we've been blessed with our own Zane. [​IMG]

    Thank you Lurky! I guess I better get some BR pullet's if I am going to hatch any pure breeds! [​IMG] That's okay! I wanted to get some BR pullets anyways! [​IMG]
