    More of Gracey. 17-18 weeks. (I don't know for sure.)

    No streamers, right? My roosters' heads look a lot different.

    Back of neck. Looks like a hen neck to me?

    She has TINY feet and legs.

    She was upset after being separated from Sunflower (pullet) and Willow (rooster).

    Tiny comb, just now getting a bit bigger, but only very slightly. This is a bad angle because her crest doesn't look round, but it is.

    Size comparison to Willow, a rooster. Same age.

    Size comparison to Sunflower, a pullet who is about two weeks younger than Gracey.

    I feel SO relieved! I thought I ended up with three out of three roosters at first! I was so upset! (that's why we went and got Sunflower)

    I'm glad for you, that would've been disappointing!
