    Meet McFly, our 9 week old Rhode Island Red. What are your thoughts, boy or girl?

    Looks to be a pullet from the pictures, if it were a cockerel the cone would be larger and already very red, as well as the feathering shows more signs of cockerel. Also by looking at the thickness of the legs, I'm gonna say this is most likely a pullet. Hope this helps.

    Yay, I sure hope she is!! We raised her alone to add her to our flock of 5 pullets 2 months older than her.

    I would guess pullet. She looks very similar to mine a few weeks ago. (She is 12 weeks now)
