    Oops! I meant --- Sex these chickens... [​IMG]

    Now that I have your undivided attention, would you take a moment and tell me what you think about these here two sexy little chickens?

    Chicken number one is Robbie. Robbie is a pretty little mottled splash EE/Polish mix. I love Robbie. Robbie is a universal name and is my son's namesake chicken. I think Robbie is a pullet. Would you confirm?

    Note the absence of wattles...the paleness of the comb...

    And here's why I think that Robbie is a pullet. This is Duffy. Duffy is a little black and coppery underfeathered EE/Polish mix. Duffy is very pushy and tries to boss all the other chickens in the yard around. Note the very red comb on Duffy and those wattles! Robbie doesn't have wattles like that...what'dya think? Is Duffy a roo?

    I think you're absolutely right. #1 is a pullet, #2 is a roo. Robbie is very pretty! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It figures!!! I have a pullet named Robbie and a Roo named Betty. [​IMG]
    Betty kept me guessing for a long time. Now Betty has a red comb like Duffy's. And you know what? I'm not changing Betty's name! [​IMG]
