    I got these beautiful babies from Buster and when I got them they both seemed to be pullets. In the last couple of days one has changed and I wonder if it isn't a roo.

    What do you think?

    this is the one I think may be the roo.

    This is the other one. I think it is a pullet.

    The tails are completely different.

    The one that I think may be a roo is brighter in color, but the other seems bigger.

    Age is 8 ish weeks...?? Could be up to 10.

    Thank yoU!

    In my limited experience, I am leaning toward both being pullets. Their combs, although one slightly pinkish, are quite narrow and slim. The colour pattern is also consistent with EE pullets that I have seen (ie. light coloured head and neck with penciled/laced type body). Just a guess.

    Mine are 8 weeks old. I have two that look just like yours and they are both pullets.

    Good. I want to hear that it is a pullet.

    I am hoping speckledhen will take a look. I have heared that she is really good at telling.

    Boys would have a wider comb and it would have 3 ridges.

    I agree, the comb is too narrow. Pullets.
