    I have assumed that Poulette is indeed une poulette, but this tail has me wondering because of the pointy long green feathers. I got her at Estes hatchery 12 weeks ago today, went there in person and they sexed an SS for me on the spot. As you can see, there's hardly any comb or wattles, and also no crowing. Do Speckled Sussex hens/pullets have tail feathers like this?

    Right now I'd call her a pullet.

    Congratulations! Enjoy!
