    A few weeks ago I posted this pic of my EE Buffy, and someone suggested she looked like a he . . .
    [​IMG][​IMG] (Buffy's the one on the left).

    Now she's about 6 weeks old - please can someone tell me if she's a she?

    I really don't want to have to get rid of her if she turns out to be a rooster. She's actually the nicest one, I think.
    Really hoping she's a hen [​IMG] Anyone want to take a guess?
    And when will it be a sure thing?

    eeehee! [​IMG]
    so you think she's a she? These are my first chicks so I haven't got much of a clue - I'm pretty confident the other three are girls but Buffy's much bigger and fluffier, and I'm a natural worrier. [​IMG]

    I'm going to guess that she is a she. The comb on her doesn't look red at all. She looks remarkably like my Ameraucana hen.

    Yayy!!! [​IMG] I'm very relieved. I was somewhat confident but that niggling doubt just wouldn't go away. I'll let you know when she starts laying!

    I doubt you'll get a rooster with that colour...
