    Needing help...Any ideas if this is a rooster? I have three and they all look alike. I believe they are about 6 weeks old.

    The comb does look a bit big and red for a pullet, so I can see why you may be worried, but her plumage coloring is very pullet. I vote pullet! [​IMG]

    Coloring in general, A roo would be lighter in color, the gray wash on her legs, the lack of wattle
