    This is Frankie...

    She is a Brahma/Isbar X...
    Do these three rows on her pea-comb denote Roo?
    Please let me know what you know and or think.
    TIA...

    How old is the bird, sometimes with mixed breed birds this pops up around 4-5 weeks depending... In pullets. If it gets red by 5-6 weeks its a cockerel as far as my guess goes, if it stays that nice pink for a long time and the feathers are coming in well you might have a pullet. The mix confuses what would more normally be sexing techniques. Are you going for an olive egger of sorts?

    Looks like a cockerel to me. But, it is too young to be certain.

    A dear friend sent me a gift of five eggs and 'she' was the only one to hatch AND thrive.
    I would have loved a 'sorted' olive-egger...PULLET! Lol.
    I appreciate everyone's input. It is keeping me out of the coop-of-denial I was hiding in!
