    I would be happy if it stays a pullet. It is a confusing chick, male feathering pattern, female comb color and size. I can't tell if the hackle feathers are pointed or if it is just the coloring making them look that way. If she is a pullet, she is definetly the dominate one. Very bossy to the others and the first at everything.

    Does anyone else have an opinion on whether I have a cockrel or pullet? Thanks for the help.

    I'm no expert on that breed, however I have just raised 7 chicks and the ones with the most outgoing, bossy personalities all turned out to be boys. The girls were quiet in comparison.

    Right now I'm voting pullet. Do you have better photos of the tail we could see?
