    Hello everyone!! I bought 3 babies friday.. They are all supposed to be "pullets". There is one that I am worried about. I am going to post some pictures and I would like your input. I have had two people tell me that they are all pullets , but there is one that I am still unsure about. The comb is a little bigger and it has more white on its chest. I will apologize in advance for all the pictures..[​IMG]

    I'm sorry to hear that, choptank330. Maybe it's just a slow day on the What Breed or Gender thread. I'm sure someone will respond soon. I stick by my earlier guess. Beautiful birds!!

    Thank you!! I had a feeling it was going to be a roo.. In just a couple of days the comb has gotten a little bigger and a bit pinker.. The other two however havent gotten any bigger or changed color. The guy that I got them from assured me they were all hens.. I guess I will be contacting him.. I already have two roosters.. I dont need another :(

    I agree, it looks like a male compared to the others. I just love this breed. One of our young SS cockerels is one of our friendliest birds ever.
