    I have 4 four month old Langshans. I believe I have 3 pullets and a roo. Here are some pictures.

    First is my surprise recessive white. I think it's a pullet.

    Here are 2 of the blacks. Roo in front and pullet in back?

    Here's another of the one in front.

    I think this is a pullet.

    Is this a pullet or roo? S/he was camera shy.

    I did ask her to check in. One was slow to feather, while the rest feathered out fast so I had assumed one was a roo.

    Of course now that they're all feathered out it's a lot harder to tell them apart!

    Quote:Really?? I thought for sure I had one boy in there. I did start wondering when I didn't see any comb development. Given how many roos I've hatched this year, I didn't think I could hatch pullets!

    Yep! And even at their age, the males have a completely different stance. The females are more parallel to the ground while the males are standing tall and proud.

    I was hoping one was a roo but I'm not going to complain!
