    Could someone please assure me that this is indeed a pullet? I purchased this one from a hatchery as a day-old sexed pullet and she is 7 weeks old now. I have since had two other chicks of different breeds from the same hatchery turn out to be cockerels, so now I'm getting a bit paranoid every time I notice any changes. Thoughts on this little one?

    I could be wrong but I am leaning towards pullet. Definitely give this one some more time and post again in a couple of weeks.
