My 5 and 1/2 week old dotte Blanche. She's my favorite out of my 10 babies but there's something suspicious about her wattles forming already. Granted she is a hatchery chick and is definitely not up to breed standards, but I'm a worry wart and it's been bothering me.

What do you guys think? Roo or pullet?

I would say rooster. When my speckled sussex, Zeus, was that age. He had those big meaty legs and roosterish look too. But maybe I'm wrong. I'm no expert! :p Wait I just looked again and the comb isn't that big... I don't know. I'm going to go with rooster though.

She's too young to be making any final decisions, but I'd say you have a pullet. Post new pictures in a couple weeks or so and we'll tell you what we think then

Oh I so hope you are right Peeka. No offense Feathers but I don't need another rooster around my farm.
I agree it is a bit early, but I love her so and I would hate for "him" to compete with our brahma roo.
