    I am curious as to what others think about the gender of my 8wk old Golden Seabright Bantam. At first, I thought it was a pullet, as it's comb was tiny and not better developed or pink/red or anything - but now I'm not so sure! He/she is beautiful, a little wary, but friendly. He/she also does not fight with the other roosters or hens I have. Pretty much, it gets along with all of the other chickens and doesn't make a fuss at all. I really want to keep him/her as I think he/she is very beautiful. Let me know if I need to get better pictures, too.
    Please let me know what you think!

    The Sebright and the D'Anver are both cockerels.

    Dang it! I knew the d'anver was a rooster already, I'm keeping him. I wanted to keep only two Bantam roosters, so it would seem I probably have three still...Well, I could always get more Bantam hens to go with them! lol I may need to sell one anyway, we'll see. Thanks for your input! :)

    the one you are worried about is a hen.
