    Hhandbasket calls them marhsmallow chickens. Offically they are Golden Seabrights. I was wondering how you even sex something this small. This chick is 4 weeks. And no I am not hurting it. It is on the counter with its wing spead but I swear I am not hurting it! Thanks so much for helping!!!

    This is a guess but I'm going to say since there is no comb that I can see, but plenty of tailfeathers already......pullet.

    Do pullets usually get tails quicker? I learn more everyday around here.

    I was told that the tail feathers for females are round. But for seabrights, both male and female are round. So I am uncertain. I can't answer your question.
