    Saffron is 8 weeks now, still not clear whether a pullet or roo - no crowing, but does chest bump and peck. Then again, my hens all did that when they were that age too! So, I don't know. What do you think??

    I think with a comb that size at 8 weeks, it must be a male. It's darling!

    saffron is is a cross from my bantam salmon favorolles hen and either my blue frizzled bantam cochin roo or my giant blue cochin roo if that helps anyone to better guess.

    at first i thought pullet going by the tail and the comb not real red but after looking at the pics again and u saying it is butting chests, i'm thinking saffron is a male also not a girl.

    can u show a pic of hackle and saddle feathers?
