    I agree with Basskids08. Pebbles is a cockerel.

    Just an update on my chick - Pebbles the Wyandotte is hen, eggs and all! We did end up with a secret roo, but it wasn't Pebbles!

    Congratulations! That's great news. It also demonstrates the difficulty of judging gender before the saddle, hackle, and sickle feathers develop using combs and wattles alone. Some breeds like Silkies can be so difficult to determine gender on that it's not known for sure until they actually lay an egg or crow. :eek:)

    Thanks for the update! I definitely would have thought she was a rooster as a chick.
