    Hello!

    Could you give me input on if you think my rhode island red is a pullet or cockerel? He/she is 7 weeks old now. Supposed to be sexed a pullet but has always stood very upright and had a slightly rooster type personality. Thank you in advance!

    Pullet.

    Roosters usually have a larger comb by now, and as young chicks have a brighter red comb development.
