    Maybe too soon to tell but would like opinions on the gender of this bird. Fingers crossed for pullet! I have read quite a bit but the behavior and white feathers on it's tail make me worried. But then again I have a RR with the same white tips.

    Pullet. Only females have that exact coloration. Males would have more black in their chest and have blotchy colored plumage.

    Good news! I would hate to have to rehome any. We have six in total, 2 eggers, 2 RR and 2 Buff Orpingtons. The other egger has similar coloring so she should be safe too. We should finish the run / coop this week and they can finally move out of the house!!
    Thanks
