    This is Daisy. She is almost 18 weeks old. I was told she was a pullet but she is so much bigger than her sister and her legs are so big, I am now starting to question it... Any help would be greatly appreciated. She is so sweet and I am so attached. She loves to sit on my lap and pulls others off of my lap by pulling their tail feathers.

    Looks like a pullet getting ready to lay! At 18 weeks it would be obvious if it was a roo, most start crowing by 14 weeks or so. When a pullet is close to lay their comb will redden as the blood flow increases. She's a beauty!
