    I have NO clue how old this sebright is. She's still peeping but fully feathered out. Anyway here is a pic:

    Any help would be great! (The roos she was with had pretty big combs and were starting to get wattles.)

    I'm guessing between six and eight weeks? I have one in my brooder that's six weeks old and looks just like her. My two Sebright roos are 11, maybe 12 weeks old and have combs and wattles. One of them has also started crowing. I keep worrying that the one in the brooder will suddenly sprout the same physical attributes over night, and I won't have ANY Sebright pullets.

    Quote:I was figuring around six weeks too. And I certainly hope she doesn't magically sprout a huge comb and wattles. I purposely wanted a pullet. [​IMG]

    Well if it makes you feel better I was able to tell my GL Sebright was a roo by 6 weeks.

    Quote:That brings me comfort. I definitely could tell that she was the pullet out of the bunch. [​IMG]
