    Sadie is about 9 weeks old and was sold to me as a Red Chantecler pullet. Her color doens't match any info I can find on the breed and while small, I think she is a he. Anyone care to chime in on this? Called the shop where I got her and they couldn't offer any help.

    Thanks!

    I'm not real familiar with the breed, but nothing about that chicks sticks out and screams "roo!", so I'm going with pullet.

    I have a red chantecler, and yours looks nothing like it!! Mine is all read, no white at all, but yours does look like a pullet. Red chanteclers are only bred from Ideal, is that where you got her?
