Hello! I have one Silver Deathlayer that I can‘t tell the gender of. I have 3 that are clearly cockerels with red swollen combs, one that clearly is a pullet with flat pale comb, and one that is in the middle a little bigger and just a touch of pink. Any one have an opinion? They are just shy of 6 weeks. Not that knowing will change the outcome... just hoping for another girl! Thanks for looking sorry I am a terrible chicken photographer!! 😬

Could we have a full body picture? We don't have any good photos to go off of here :)

Deathlayers can be a bit tricky. I wouldn’t rule out cockerel just yet. All of my females had zero color, a dull and completely flat comb. Had a sneaky cockerel that barely showed any color and lacked in the comb wattle department. Few weeks later he showed his true colors.

Good luck on it being a pullet though!

Edit: Found a 6 week old photo of the sneaky one for comparison.

Thanks for the expert opinion! Guess I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed for a pullet! How old are yours now?
