    Sure looks like a pullet, but I`m gonna say cockeral. Pink face and curved tailfeather is the reason. Most pullets would not show color in their face until they are nearly old enough to lay and certainly would not have curved tailfeathers. Look at the saddle feathers. If they have sharp points, that`s another rooster clue. Ya can`t see them in the pics. Good luck.........Pop

    Quote:Yep, it's the curved tail feathers that keep me from being sure it's a hen. I can't see any sharp hackle feathers yet.
