    Can anyone help please? I bought three bantam pullets last week, although I am not sure if this black sumatra is a pullet or a cockerel. You seem like you all know your stuff, please help![​IMG]

    She looks like a pullet to me, and a pretty one at that!

    My Sumatras are my second favorite breed!

    Thank you all! I am very tempted to get a cockerel to go with her if that's the case. Not sure what the neighbours will say though! She is beautiful, I can't wait to see her in the summer sun.

    pullet. she wont get that beautiful long tail like the males though and those tails are hard to keep up at times and crows are loud(although i'm used to the lf version of sumatra).

    Yes the cockerels are stunning. I've been told that the bantams don't make that much noise, but I may have to investigate that!!!!
