Hi all! I guess now at 12 weeks I have my answer. Looks to be a beautiful cockerel after all that hoping otherwise. I sure wish I had the foresight to move to the country a long time ago! I would keep him! Anyone live near Lakewood WA that would like my friend here, let me know. He is a fine bird. Thank you so much for your replies, and if you still think pullet, I would be happy to entertain it, lol. And just remember, even if you buy a "pullet", you may not get one! Love them anyway!
