    Hi everybody, got a batch of chicks at the end of august, never had a breed like this and was wondering what you all thought it was. Also I would like to see if you think it is a pullet or roo, thanks!!

    Hi and welcome to BYC! I think your chicken is a pullet, maybe a dark Cornish. I am no expert, but that's what I think! :)

    Looks like a dark cornish, but it could be a cross.

    Is it from a hatchery? I'm also leaning toward dark cornish pullet.

    A closer picture of its tail feathers would help

    It looks like a Dark Cornish, and its tail feathers makes me think cockerel. But it has such a tiny comb!
