    I know it's still a little early to tell for certain, but what would you guess? Hoping for a pullet! I picked it because it had pretty white tips on the wings and a tiny comb compared to some others the same age.

    Yep, I agree - pullet. Speckledhen confirmed that my Barred Rock was a cockerel and he looked nothing like yours. Mine had a very large splotchy white spot and very yellow legs.

    Congrats [​IMG] She's a pretty little girl

    You all don't understand the ridiculous amount of time we spent analyzing the presence of wattles, comparing the sizes of all their combs, etc. [​IMG]

    And I didn't even know about the white spot thing until I got home and searched BYC!
