Hi there! Can anyone tell me what you think about this little silver polish? I am an urban chicken-er and cannot have roosters in city limits. No wattles yet, but grew in to her head feathers early. She is a little over 12 weeks now. I so hope she is a pullet (do you see how I keep saying "she" ;)). We were told there is a 1 in 50 chance of getting a rooster from where we purchased her. That would figure! The pictures below are her progression over the past few weeks. Thoughts on gender, or is it too early to tell?

A little young yet to be sure, but I see no wattles or comb development. The laced varieties have a wilder hairdo than the white crested so it doesn't always mean a rooster. Give it some time.
