    This little one hatched Christmas Day with another chick we are pretty sure is a cockerel. We were initially thinking it was a pullet, as one of our hens has a large floppy comb, but now we aren't so sure. Definitely has not crowed.

    Thanks!

    I'll be in the barn!
    I think pullet since there are no saddle feathers visible in that picture.

    It's a cockerel. The red patches on the wings are a giveaway.
