    We hatched chicks in Feb and so far I know 2 are boys. Still trying to figure out if this is our only girl. Could use advice! We are in the process of trying to re-home the cockerels. He/she is almost 9 weeks. The 2 boys have massive combs and wattles that turned red very early. I thought this was a pullet until her face started turning pink, but her comb is still small. Momma is a white leghorn and we were told the Dad was an easter egger. Looked a lot like a rhode island red to me, but I'm new at this![​IMG]

    Thanks! I'm really hoping she's a pullet. I've just been back and forth.
