Sorry, but asking again. I’m trying to make sure this is looking like a pullet and not a cockerel. She’s about 9-10 weeks, bit more. She really likes to strut around with her tail up high. She’s also getting more of a comb than the others, with one little bead. I don’t know much about this breed. I’m new to them. But I have heard they can get their combs and wattles, faster than others. I’m hoping for a hen, of course, but I’ve had a run with supposed hens becoming roosters. TIY

I'm probably wrong since it's been a while since I've hatched and grown out any BLRW, but the amount of red in the wings is kind of saying cockerel to me. There's something about the body shape and head that also kind of looks that way to me. Again, I'm out of the game a couple years so I hope I'm wrong! They are just so good as switching on you when you're sure. I had one I was so sure was a cockerel and she's a she! When they have more red in the wing I'm just suspicious until I get 100% proof haha.
