    OKAY!
    umm.. well i have a BO that is supposed to be a pullet, and she's actually is about 5 months old...
    but she has a large comb and wattles...and they are just getting redder
    she's never crowed but i wanted to make sure she isnt a he...
    i also have a picture of my rooster who is the same age as this supposed hen.. and he crows a lot.. and is way bigger than her...

    I'm no expert but based on the feathers I would say maturing hen.

    I have BO that where hatched out april 8th. Congradulations.. You have a Hen!! I have 5 BO hens and 2 Roos..neither one of the Roos are crowing and the hens aren't laying. But, I am sure in time they will. I just went out to the chicken coop to see the difference between the hens from the roos. If she was a Roo..she would have a beautiful neck cape. You have a beautiful maturing hen that is in no hurry to lay eggs!!![​IMG][​IMG] Good luck with her..I love my Buffs!!!

    They both look to be hens.
