    Its been about a month since I last checked with everyone so I am hoping nothing has changed since everyone said pullet.

    Here is debbie, she is 10 weeks today. I have been patiently waiting for my bratty teenager to get in the cuddle mode so I could take some pics.
    Her feathers are kinda shiny, although pic doesnt show it well. I think I read on here, that means roo?
    Her comb is also getting larger than I would expect for a pullet.

    Thanks for your input. Pretty confident or just a guess?

    Quote:I'm very confident. At 10 weeks a roo would have a bigger, redder comb and well-defined red wattles. The comb in your pic still has yellow tips which for 10 weeks says pullet to me.

    Yayyy.

    But now I am starting to question my SLW because I just saw a topic on here about if the tails stand straight up it means roo. Hers definitely does :S
