    My speckled Sussex, Rudolph, is six weeks old today. Do you think Rudolph is a pullet or a roo?[​IMG]

    How do you know? Is there any way it could be a girl? In my area, I'm not allowed to have roosters

    I am voting cockerel too due to the size of it's comb and the amount of white on it's breast and stomach.

    That much comb this young, very likely a cockerel.

    Rudolph is now 10 weeks old and has not crowed yet. Does Rudolph still have the physical features of a cockerel?

    Still looks like a roo. Some boys take a while to crow. I've had roos wait 4+ months.
