    This is what my "white" pullet is turning into...she is getting more "red" as she ages. Thanks for the answers....
    So, should I just cull, or is she breedable with something? I only have white, buff, bbs & partridge.

    That's a plus but those waddles are quite big for 4 mths. so don't get your hopes up. :)

    Funny thing is we just moved from NC. I think it is probably too hot to ship there now, right? I mean, I would be willing to give it a shot if the temps were good.


    That is so weird. Where in NC were you located? The weather is has been strange it was like 80+ in March and then early this month in the 70's. It looks like the rest of the week is mid 80's [​IMG]. Does not look like a break untill the first of the month. Last week and until today it was in the mid 70's. Figures my luck. If things change maybe I can contact you via pm and see if he is still available. I really dont know what a good temp is but when I walk out I am hot.

    We were in Charlotte.

    Sure, keep an eye on the 10 days and lets see what happens.

    Thank you for the patience in explaining the color genetics. The painted wall example along with the following was very helpful.

    Really looks like a boy to me. That comb is kind of big for his age. But hey, maybe "she" will grow into it?? I don't know. Hopefully I'm wrong, but my bet would be a rooster. If he is 4 months already, you'll know soon enough, mine start crowing around 4-5 months.
