    I had posted this on the Raising baby chicks forum and was told that I may get more answers if I posted here.

    Do you think my 16 week old BR pullet is a cockerel?

    looks like a girl... but those tail feathers look sickle shaped, but if she's 16 weeks then it's probably a pullet.

    Looks like a boy, my full grown barred rock hens don't have combs that big.

    My nearly 16wk BR pullets have hardly any comb/wattles at all. And the tail feathers look rooish to me.

    I would say rooster, but I am not a chicken wiz. I just have chickens that are 17 weeks that hardly have a comb at all, that is the only reason I would guess. But, maybe some develop differently!!

    I would say girl because of the color. Roos tend to be lighter but it has aweful big wattles and it does look like it is getting saddle feathers but my instincts still say girl.

    If the one standing next to it in the second pic is the same age then I would say Roo.
