    My 10 week old speckled sussex "pullet" crowed this morning... Here are some pictures taken yesterday. Her comb is kinda funny looking (hatchery chick). She does have really big legs...she was sexed at the hatchery...
    Is she a roo???

    Well to me she looks like a she. Do you have any roos? If you don't the head pullet can start crowing. I had it happen to me.

    yes, is she the dominant chicken in the flock? a hen will take over the role of "Head Rooster" if the rooster is old or if there is none. from your pictures it looks like a pullet...

    She is definitely the alpha hen and I don't think I have any roos. I'm a little suspect of my EE right now too...

    For a 10 week old that's an awfully bif comb & waddle! All my pullets that I bought that were hatched in the month of March doesn't have anything even close that that!! Well, except one that turned out to be a roo!!
