    So I have a five week old buttercup. It has a wide comb but it's still yellow
    with a small hint of red poking trough the middle. Its coloring around the neck and
    belly is salmonish (sorry can't post pics). It's wings are spotted like a pullet. It is very calm. Just wondering what else to look for to tell it's gender before it crows or lays an egg.

    Sounds like a boy.

    This is what a pullet looks like:

    I had never heard of the Buttercup breed, so I looked them up after seeing your beautiful pullet. My are they pretty! I think I may have found my new breed for next springs chicks. [​IMG]

    Okay, so when I read the title I wasn't thinking of a new buttercup, but a new gender [​IMG] and was thinking....huh. I only know of the two. [​IMG]
