    At 11 weeks and I'm still leaning pulley on this one. Still pinker than her sisters but no comb development at all to speak of.

    I know, right?!? It has a younger sibling that looks almost identical so we shall see. Hopefully both pullets otherwise I have waaay too many boys in this flock

    I think you're right; a little lady! She looks (in the face) just like my 10 week EE, Nibs (Niblet), who is decidedly female. Beautiful girl!!!

    It's not the face I'm looking at. It's the shade of red on the back and where it is that makes me think this is a slowly maturing cockerel. Do you have a picture of your Niblet that shows her in profile?

    Yeah, the dark red wings are what have had me staring at this chicken for the last 6 weeks waiting for it to rock and roll like a cockerel

    13 week Update:

    Pretty sure I've got myself a pullet after all. Bonus: her little sister looks to be one too (not shown here)
