    I was praying it was a pullet, she feathered in quickly but then now at 6-7 weeks her beautiful comb has turned red but not so much the waddles..
    So help me here, is she a he??

    I hate to say it but its a roo. Since its bearded it wont get much in terms of wattles but that comb is a dead give away.

    Disagree. I'd say it's a pullet.

    Boy. I've had pullets get color in their comb early on, but yours has an all boy stance. (and thick legs)

    Boy. I have five olive eggers in my growout pen and they are now 10+ weeks old. No pink in the combs - I'm still not even sure mine are pullets yet, but yours looks like a boy. [​IMG]
