    If you could post some pictures of its face and comb that would be helpful.

    thank you so much! I really Hope so! I'm praying! I only want a small flock of four and so far I've had to replace two! I can't have roos. where I live. it's so heart breaking to have to replace them once your attached! I'm praying these last two are female. I'm pretty sure my black one is female it's just the buff I question. I Hope I don't wake up to crowing again! I kinda think the buff looks female too, I just wanted your thoughts! I pray we are right!

    Yay! goodness I Hope so! maybe it's time my luck changed for the better! as I was saying I only want a small flock of four and I've already went through two roosters! it's very difficult to rehome them after you are attached so much! but I HAD to do it. what I've noticed is the roosters very young cockerels are actually kinder to my other two birds that are confirmed female. the new birds seem to peck at them during meal time. I'm hoping that's a good sign of pullets?I know my cockerels never pecked at them during a meal like these do? is pecking during a meal the sign of another female? I'm wondering?
