    I would question the Hamburg and think it's a roo. That's a pretty red comb and wattles for 9 weeks. I could be wrong, I don't know the breed.

    The two that really bothers me is "Abigail"and "gracie"....might be roo, but at that age should have a lot bigger comb...also Citron Hamburg pullets do get combs and wattles that look just like your pic....so tough call

    I have two BLRWs.. one cockrel and one pullet. My cockrel had huge bright red comb and waddles at 7 weeks and my pullet looks just like yours. I think Abigail is a pullet, but I'm new at this. [​IMG]

    I'm a newbie too but I think that Gracie is the only one that looks like a cockerel and maybe Abigail. [​IMG]

    Thank you!!!

    One day I noticed that Abigail's legs were a lot thicker than Charlotte's which just about caused me to faint. Abigail is also the dominant one of my little group. As far as Gracie, I agree that comb is very red. Behavior-wise she is very comfortable pretending she is Agate's mother. She lets the little one pick food from her beak and she will roost such that Agate can snuggle under her breast. Would a roo do that?

    Here's my Silver Laced Wyandotte "Sadie"....for comparison. She is 12 weeks and definitely a pullet
