    This chick is 10 weeks old and is a mix between Buff Brahma hen and Jubilee Orpington rooster. Do you think it is a pullet or cockerel?

    Huh. At first glance I thought pullet, but I think I'm seeing darker shading on the wings. Both those breeds can be pretty slow to mature. Can we get a comb shot?

    Thank you for your responses. I am adding close up shots of comb and feathering.

    Thank you for your replies. I sure hope this is a pullet. We had 4 chicks to hatch from our flock. Same Jubilee roo but different breeds of hens. The other 3 I think may be cockerels but haven't taken photos to post.
