    Can more people chime in any thoughts? I keep trying to learn more about each breed and hearing why is very helpful.
    Thanks

    Sometimes birds with pea combs can be a little trickier to sex, but from what I can tell, there appears to be a single groove in the pea comb which would likely indicate pullet. Cockerels usually have three ridges, however at this age, it may still be a little hard to tell.

    She looks like a pullet because of her small and pale comb.

    Fingers crossed. Thanks! Wondering, is she a blue egg layer? If she is indeed a she.
