    [​IMG] I'm really new to chickens so I really hope I'm wrong. I posted pics a few weeks ago and was told pullet, but she suddenly starting to look/act different to me. Please tell me I'm wrong! We just had to give away our favorite chick because he was rooster, so I'm paranoid now. She's somewhere around 9-10 weeks I think.

    I think she is a pullet.

    I think she looks like a pullet. Are you sure on her age?
