    I know this has probably been addressed but I can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for. I am getting a couple of Top hats on the 9th of March. I have done a lot of research online to find ways to increase my chances of picking out a pullets. I have read about venting (No thank you), pin feathers, size of the feet, size of the comb, the shape of the puff on the head, (old wives tales) hold them a certain way to see how they react.

    I would like to know if anyone can attach or lead me in the right direction to find pictures comparing the boys and girls. This way I can see the difference. I know I have a 50/50 shot but if I can increase my luck I would like to do that.

    Thank you for any information.
