    I believe my GLW pullet that I ordered as a pullet is a little boy. I ordered it from Ideal Poultry.

    I have seen them go that color early, but turn out to be a pullet. I'd wait before I made any decisions on it.

    sexing based on the comb is just too unreliable. I would say wait a while longer.

    Ok, because I don't know if they vent sex them or feather sex them.

    I got her as a sexed pullet. If she doesn't turn out to be one I'm going to be mad and has to get rid of it.

    Comb reddness/size isn't always accurate, but I'm going to say rooster. Sorry!

    That makes me so mad. I had to pay extra for a pullet. What do I get? A rooster that I can't keep. [​IMG]

    How old? If under 12 weeks, I'm leaning towards cockerel. I am sorry if you can't keep him.
