    This is the only one to hatch of a dozen BLRW eggs back in March. I am hoping for a pullet, but it has some chunky legs and big comb and waddles.

    Roo for sure and he looks to have nice lacing and good dark coloring.

    I don't know about roo...I don't see any saddle feathers and the hackles look very rounded. If she/he hatched in March then it is about 12-16 weeks old depending on the time in March. Around 16 weeks is about the time my GLW started to get her large wattle and comb. I say you have a hen.

    All my hens have chunky legs. [​IMG]

    I think it's a girl too. Do you have a close-up pic of the feathers on her back?
