    This LO was purchased from a hatchery as a sexed pullet. Please tell me this is indeed the case?? She's almost 5 weeks old...

    I have a buff Orpington, same age, and my LO's comb and waddles are a tad bit more pronounced than the buff's. And I have a Welsummer that was supposed to be a sexed pullet and it is DEFINITELY a cockerel. So now I'm a little leery when I see progressively growing combs/waddles. Since all of the breeds are different that I got, I don't have any multiples to compare each other to

    give it a little longer and if the comb and waddles get bigger then you probobly have one
